Hillingdon Manor School is a specialist school for children and young people aged 3-19 years, who have been diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC).
Hillingdon Manor School opened in 1999 as an independent school with the aim of providing a tailored learning environment for children and young people with autism.
Located over three sites from early years, to primary and secondary, the school offers a unique mix of education and support to pupils within a wide spectrum of needs and abilities. Personalised teaching and learning in an autism specific environment allows pupils’ individual needs to be addressed completely and their capabilities fully realised.
We aim to:
- Create a sense of community by encouraging all pupils to become active participants in the school and local colleges of further education, close partnership with parents and members of the local community.
- Develop social understanding by carefully designed programmes fully informed by the in-house clinical team. We also recognise we have a duty to promote awareness and understanding of autism in the community.
- Improve well-being by supporting our pupils to understand their own feelings and emotions and provide them with a range of strategies to cope with daily activities.
- Enhance academic achievement by delivering a broad curriculum which is meaningful and fun with academic and vocational pathways.
- Develop independence by promoting choice in everything that we do in preparing our young people to contribute to their community.
Hillingdon Manor School is located across three sites to provide specialist education for children with autism from the age of three up to the age of 19.
The school is proud to offer an environment which inspires learning and where students can flourish, whilst personalised targets ensure every young person can make progress appropriate to their specific needs.
