Coming soon 

Whatley Campus

The Whatley campus, Whatley Avenue SW20, is opening in September 2022 in the building most recently used for two years by Harris Academy Wimbledon. This new special school will be opened for pupils with EHCPs for ASD/ SLCN.  Works are commencing in February to refurbish the building to a high standard both internally and externally to provide good quality teaching and therapy spaces for pupils in KS2, KS3 and KS4 on the autistic spectrum (ASD) and with Speech, Language and Communication difficulties (SLCN) social, emotional or mental health needs. This will include acoustic treatment to provide a calm, therapeutic environment.

Pupils will be supported in small classes (maximum 15 pupils) with highly specialist teaching and support staff as well as a wide range of therapeutic interventions.  Onsite Speech and Language therapists, Occupational Therapists, CAMHS and Music Therapy will be an integral part of the team. 

Pupils in KS2 and KS3 will have access to a broad curriculum offer, including the core subjects of English, Maths and Science as well as a wide range of specialist subject areas delivered in purpose built classrooms.

As pupils enter Key Stage 4 they will have the opportunity to take GCSEs and/ or Entry Level courses, and a range of other qualifications according to their needs and abilities.  Programmes are devised to work on building the skills pupils need to go on to further study or work.  The broad range of subjects offered, which are taught by subject specific teachers includes English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Computing, PE, Art/ DT, Music, Drama, Food Technology, Citizenship, RE, PSHE and SRE.  Additional opportunities for Duke of Edinburgh, ASDAN, Arts Award, Sports Leadership will also be offered.

Our goal is to help all pupils become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.  We will provide a supportive and nurturing environment for pupils, following a bespoke curriculum taking account of individual learning needs. This is supported by close work with a range of professionals including speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, CAMHS, mentoring and Educational psychologists.
