Special Announcement

We’ve been waiting for a long time to have our specially designed new building to house the School for Autism… and we are delighted to announce that it’s almost ready!

In March 2017 preparations began on site next to our current building, to make way for a new school building designed to meet th needs of our children with Autism. We’ve had cranes, bulldozers, scaffolding, all manner of people in hard hats and slowly but surely have watched the building magic happen. Finally, after a few missed deadlines and lots and lots of hard work and waiting, the moment is almost here when we can move into the building.

It already looks fantastic, and we are packing up and getting ready to move…

Hopefully, when the children return from October half term holidays, the School for Autism @ Newfield will be open for business! We will be holding a series of open events and tours, so check back and make sure you book your place to come and find out what all the excitement is about!
