Welcome to Abbot’s Lea School

Abbot’s Lea School is an outstanding special school that provides the highest quality of education for nearly 300 students aged 3-19 living with Autism and a range of associated communication, interaction, social, imagination, sensory and learning differences.

I feel honoured to be our school’s Headteacher and, together with an outstanding team of staff, I work tirelessly to ensure the best education and care is on offer at our school.

I have always practised an ‘open door’ policy and I really encourage you to take advantage of this – please contact me whenever issues arise – or just come in to say ‘hello’! To find our more about our school’s daily updates, follow us on Twitter and Facebook @AbbotsLeaSchool.

Our vision is to become an International Centre of Excellence in Autism Education, Research and Development, where every student and member of staff can be the best that they can be – we hope you join us on our journey!
