Message from our Patron
“Hillingdon Manor School is an oasis in a desert of educational provision. Its teaching staff and specialist facilities make a real difference to youngsters diagnosed with an autism spectrum condition and maximise the potential of every pupil.
The school is a credit to what Anna Kennedy and her dedicated team have managed to achieve through sheer hard work, dedication and a belief that there is a better way of teaching for people with an autism spectrum condition. Its great to see happy youngsters studying and achieving great results, often after many years of despair and disappointment for them and their families.
“Tragically over a number of years special needs schools have been simply phased out, instead of being expanded and developed to meet the needs of children in Britain today. In many places, as highlighted by the Children’s Commissioner, education facilities for children affected by autism simply don’t exist.
The school is a wonderful facility that is so desperately needed in our country and I am delighted to be associated with helping children with autism achieve their full potential”.
