  • Brief description: The New School, founded in 1992, supports young people with a range of additional support needs who have been unable to flourish within mainstream education. The majority of students at The New School have a diagnosis of a condition which has created barriers to their social, emotional and educational development. Many of our students are on the autistic spectrum. Small classes, experienced teachers, care staff, therapists and a caring environment help children to learn and build self-confidence. It is a truly inclusive school.
