General environment

Aurora Redehall School supports children aged 6-16 years with communication difficulties typically associated with Asperger’s Syndrome and Autism.

Students are likely to experience challenges with social communication and interaction with others and may have additional issues around their understanding of the social rules. These difficulties can impact on their emotional well-being and ability to participate in education. Larger environments requiring movement between classrooms, noise and big groups can create anxieties which become debilitating and a block to learning, resulting in many having extended periods out of school and then falling behind their peers.

Redehall School provides an environment conducive to learning for this specific student profile, designed to help them re-engage with learning and enjoy school life. With the right support, most students will have the opportunity to achieve academic success and work towards GCSEs.

Specialist teaching and therapy support, together with small classes and a nurturing approach give them the opportunity to work at a pace that’s right for them. We help build self-esteem and confidence, work on strategies to support students’ individual needs and enable them to focus on their education, alongside the development of their social skills. 

Aims and philosophy

We believe in empowering uniqueness. We want every child and young person to achieve their full potential; educationally, socially and personally. We work with students to help them grow and develop in their own unique and inspiring ways.
 
Ultimately, our aim is to ensure young people are prepared for their future, by giving them strategies to have choices in life – whether that’s further education, which includes being able to access mainstream settings, training or to explore job opportunities.
