The new buildings have been specifically designed to cater for those with autism. Example features include classrooms grouped into family zones to minimise the scale of the building. Access to a withdrawal group space from every classroom to assist with behavioural issues. External learning space outside every ground floor classroom. The ethos and vision of the school is to remove barriers to learning and provide the pupils with the right to the same opportunities, experiences and life changes as every other young person in the Local Authority. The new and improved facilities will enable them to develop life skills, employment skills and the ability to be healthy through sports and exercise.
