Welcome from the Head
Whatley Campus is a small, specialist school for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and associated SLC (speech, language and communication) and SEMH (social, emotional and mental health) needs. All students have an EHCP to support their learning and development.
Whatley Campus is a supportive, nurturing environment with small class sizes and a range of enrichment and extra-curricular activities. We cater for students in years 5 to 11 and offer GCSE and equivalent qualifications delivered by highly specialist teachers and support staff. We opened in September 2022 in a newly renovated, state of the art building, which has been especially designed to cater to the needs of students with ASD. Every student has a staff mentor from the outset and access to 1-to-1 mentoring sessions.
Students have a bespoke timetable created to meet their individual learning needs and there is a wide range of therapeutic provision. We support students in every aspect of school life and provide them with opportunities to learn about themselves and the wider world, as well as the requirements of the curriculum. It is our aim that every young person will have the tools they need to become a successful learner and a confident individual ready for the world beyond education.
