Radio City School

Welcome to Radio City School

Rated ‘Good’ by Education Scotland, Radio City School is located in Kilbirnie, Ayrshire. We are an independent, specialist school providing education to children and young people aged 8 to 18 years with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs and neurodivergent conditions, such as an autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and learning disabilities. Our young people have often had negative experiences in school with substantial gaps in their education.

We put our pupils at the heart of everything that we do, providing them with person-centred support to help them achieve the best possible outcomes and future success.

Pupils attending Radio City School can also live at one of our associated children’s homes, located close to the school and within the beautiful Ayrshire countryside.

Important announcement:

Our name has now changed from Aspire Scotland Limited to Aspris Scotland Limited on the Scotland Excel Children’s Residential Care and Education Services Flexible Framework Agreement.

We will inspire and motivate our pupils to develop their knowledge and skills to help them succeed in learning, life and work.

School Aims

  • To encourage our young people to have high aspirations in life and provide high quality learning and teaching experiences which help them to gain the knowledge and skills to achieve them
  • To provide a safe, nurturing and highly supported learning environment where every learner can feel confident and courageous, and every learner can experience respect and kindness

A personalised learning environment

We offer a warm and nurturing environment, where pupils receive the support they need to develop emotionally and socially, and prepare to learn again. Our highly experienced and dedicated staff team make learning feel worthwhile and enjoyable for our young people. They build positive and meaningful connections so that pupils feel secure, understood and valued, with a sense of belonging to our school and the wider community.

We have ambitious expectations for our pupils in all aspects of school life. We are dedicated to guiding them every step of the way along their personalised learning journey, and supporting them to feel positive and hopeful about their future. With our specialist support, the young people in our care are empowered to build the social and independence skills they need to make positive transitions to further learning or employment.

“I’ve got a lot to thank the staff for. If my daughter hadn’t gone into care and received the support she’s got, she wouldn’t be here right now. She’s flourishing, she’s happy and it’s just absolutely amazing. All of the family can see the difference in her.”
