Our client school is an independent special school that offers access to education for students aged 5 to 19 who have difficulty learning as a result of Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and Aspergers Syndrome. The school is based near Colchester, Essex.

They help develop young people's emotional well-being and social skills. The aim is to develop students to be effective learners so they are able to cope better with the things they find challenging. As a school, they do this through a focus on establishing positive and healthy relationships, emotional well-being and developing social skills.
