Located in Roehampton in South West London, Roehampton Gate School (formerly Priory Lodge School) is an independent, specialist day school for children and young people aged 7-19 years with high functioning autism and associated conditions.
Personalised education and therapeutic support
Roehampton Gate School delivers specialised and highly individualised education and support that transforms the lives of our young people and their families. Our extensively experienced staff team work with passion and dedication to empower young people to become successful learners, responsible citizens and confident individuals.
We continuously review our skilfully tailored education and therapeutic support, to ensure we meet each individual’s developing needs and guide students to develop the educational, social and life skills for a happy and fulfilling future. We place a strong emphasis on social and emotional learning, which together with holistic therapy integrated into daily teaching, sees students grow as people and build confidence and resilience. Our curriculum is designed along three separate pathways to engage and inspire young people and best prepare them for positive transitions to employment, apprenticeships or further learning.
A school tailored to our students’ needs
Our students are at the heart of all that we do and the school has been purposefully designed to meet their specific needs. There is a simple school layout to avoid confusion and small classes enabling staff to provide the intensive support that helps young people to develop and progress. They provide the low arousal and safe environment many of our young people need to develop the confidence to speak in groups and collaborate with others, which is a key area of development. Anxiety is also minimised because there are no large crowds of students, instead young people are part of a warm and inclusive school community where everyone has a place.
Students thrive at Roehampton Gate School in London and we are proud of the progress they make in every aspect of their learning. We are committed to ensuring that each young person leaves us with improved confidence and self-esteem, with strategies to manage the challenges autism can present and with belief in their own unique strengths and abilities.
Roehampton Gate School further benefits from a wonderful location within walking distance of Richmond Park and with transport links to London. We would love to welcome you to our school, please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit.
