Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Sybil Elgar School

It is with pleasure that I welcome you and your child to our progressive, caring school. We offer early years, primary, secondary and sixth form education, to young people on the autism spectrum. From September 2018, we will also be offering education for young people aged 19-22.

In addition, The National Autistic Society provide a separate Children’s Home (Sybil Elgar House).

When your child comes to Sybil Elgar, they become a member of our family-friendly community. We look after your child with as much care and understanding as you would at home, and we put the needs and welfare of our children above everything else.

Your child will be offered consistent and reliable support. We know that this will help them to learn to the very best of their abilities. Our school is highly structured, and we pride ourselves on the warm, welcoming place we have created where children feel valued and safe. We provide differentiated access to the Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum, and to our very successful creative arts curriculum.

At Sybil Elgar we are always looking for innovative ways to inspire your child and to address their specific learning requirements. We aim to provide your child with the confidence and skills they need to find enjoyment and fulfilment in what they do. We constantly strive to help them achieve their full potential, ready for adult life.

Please come and visit us, see our facilities and meet our team. We look forward to seeing you.
