Philpots Manor School is a residential special school and training centre based on the principles of Rudolf Steiner.

The children the school are most able to help have a broad range of emotional and behavioural difficulties. These difficulties may stem from social deprivation, abuse or from a recognised clinical condition such as epilepsy, a developmental disorder or an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Children will be accepted providing they have the ability to manage a classroom situation, where they are helped to reach their full potential. Pupils are taught in classes of up to 6 pupils. Another disability and condition catered for is Attachment Disorder. Total number of pupils/students with an ASD: 10.
