Dove House is an outstanding school (Ofsted September 2019) for students with moderate learning difficulties, many of whom have autism and other associated conditions. The school opened its Post 16 provision in September 2016 and has a thriving SCITT.

Our vision is for all students to be well rounded young adults and lead as independent lives as possible. Dove House thrives on high aspirations and expectations for both students and staff, leading to excellence in both academic and personal progress. Our teaching community provides an outstanding teaching and learning experience for all. At Dove House we are guided by the simple question, ‘Have I made a difference today?’
