Fairfield House School offers specialist education and care for children and young people aged between 8 – 19 years who experience autism and complex learning and behavioural needs. The curriclum is informed by principles of outbound and situational learning, for those who cannot cope with a traditional classroom setting. We learn through 'doing', by increasing community integration and life skills. We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing yet stimulating environment for young people to meet their full potential.

Education can and should be enjoyable, even if young people have not experienced this in the past. Our school provides a holistic and inclusive educational framework, underpinned by the content and assessment criteria of the National Curriculum.

We are able to offer a range of placement options including:

  • Fully residential care and education placement (38 or 52 weeks) - including those who have been excluded from other settings.
  • Shared educational placements; offering part-time support so the young person can remain in a school placement successfully.
  • Educational Day Placements
