The school provides education for up to 75 children and young people with autistic spectrum disorder and is approved by the Department for Education to admit children between the ages of five and nineteen. There is residential accommodation for 20 boarding children and young people.


National Curriculum Key Stage groupings are considered throughout the school. Each child is admitted on an initial assessment period of one term when a decision will be made on his/her suitability to continue at the school.


The primary requirement for admission must be a diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorder. The various advices to the Statement of Special Educational Need should provide this information.

Compatible Grouping

Consideration will be given to the best interests of children and young people already in school when applicants are being considered for admission. A new child/young person must be able to join an age appropriate group.

The school meets the needs of children and young people with a broad range of ability and across the full autistic spectrum and consideration will be given to the level of ability and the pervasiveness of autism in an attempt to achieve a manageable class balance.

Our Admissions policy is currently being updated, once completed it can be viewed by clicking here.or by visiting the website’s policy section.

How to Apply

Application, supported by a specialist is generally made via the Local Authority. Visits to the school are normally made by parents and professionals prior to an application being submitted. An assessment of suitability is also carried out by a member of the school’s senior management team and the outcomes are forwarded to the Local Authority.


Wargrave House requires one terms notice from a Local Authority should they wish to withdraw a child/young person from the school.

A copy of the full admissions procedure is available from the school administration department.
