Following discussions with some members of the village and our school Governors, we thought it might be helpful to set up this site so that everyone in the local area can have an insight into the work and development of the school. For those who don’t know what we do, Swalclifffe Park is a residential and day school for boys aged 10-19 yrs who are on the autism spectrum. We work with over 20 Local Authorities and currently provide places for 66 students.
We are proud to say that the school have received a number of accolades for its work in this field including a long track record of Outstanding judgments from OFSTED and Advanced Level Autism Accreditation. We have also been invited to speak at a number of national and international conferences.
We are a large local employer with over 90 staff and operate within a beautiful site which includes a lake, woods, playing fields and a number of listed and newer buildings. We are keen to be a good neighbour to the village, contributor to the local economy, and supporter of community-based projects such as the woodland play park.
The very nature of our school population, means that many of our students are sensitive to variety of noises. So with this in mind it, we would really appreciate it if you are planning any works could you let us know in advance.
As you can imagine, an old and beautiful building and grounds like ours require constant care and attention, not to mention investment, and we are constantly seeing how we can make best use of the resources we have to ensure the environment we create for the boys is autism-friendly and of a high standard. We also wish to create a productive and comfortable place of work for our staff.
The success of the school over recent years has also led to a growth in student numbers, which is partly why a number of building projects have recently been commissioned.
We also have ongoing plans to ensure the fabric of the building remains sound, as well as for some new developments. Here is a summary of our forthcoming plans and approximate dates for these works. We hope you find it helpful to know about these plans and appreciate your support with our school development which is all focussed on improving quality of life outcomes our students and their families.
