About Tadley Court School
Tadley Court School is a specialist residential and day school for girls and boys aged four to 19 with autistic spectrum disorders and associated learning difficulties. Students may also exhibit challenging behaviours as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding. Placements are for 38 weeks across a three-term year with the option of a two-week residential activity holiday in the summer.
Our aim is to help our students achieve their full potential by understanding their limitations and making the most of their abilities, so they can enjoy their lives and make positive life choices.
We offer a child-centred approach that focuses on the needs of each individual student, creating a framework that promotes self-confidence and self-esteem in a safe, structured and predictable environment.
Our students learn how to develop effective compensatory strategies to overcome difficulties in social and emotional processing and communication, and inflexibility in thinking and behaviour. They engage in high levels of physical activity throughout the day which reduces their excess energy and allows them to develop the mental and physical composure necessary to access the whole curriculum.
Tadley Court School is specially designed to provide the best facilities and education for children with autism, from our individual education plans to our sports and activities programmes.
The curriculum provides a balance of physical activity, academic subjects and a wide range of therapies. Spacious classrooms include specialist facilities for art, music, drama, science, food and design technology and information and communications technology.
