A Word From The Principal

My inspiration for Hope House School and Vacation Centre was because of the plight of one small boy with a rare genetic disorder called Opitz Syndrome, who is also on the Autistic Spectrum.  This little boy is Hugh, and he is my grandson.  I know his trauma is not unique and there are many children and families throughout the UK who are struggling to provide their children with the most effective education and care.  For many their disorders make attending mainstream school a torment.

Through passionate fund raising efforts and professional support, I am now realising my dream to provide a unique school, which will transform the lives of up to twenty five educationally fragile children.  Through specially tailored one to one or two to one tuition in individual teaching rooms and small groups, my staff aim to build their confidence and help them make sense of the world around them.  By using our very special animals we give them responsibility, something to love and care for and all this is reciprocated in a non judgemental way.  

I hope you enjoy reading our web site, but should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school directly.

Welcome to the World of Hope House School

We believe we have created our very own community here at Hope House through our sole purpose of transforming the lives of children living on the autistic spectrum! 

The world of Hope House is like no other, for over 10 years now we have been working with primarily autistic children and young people but diversify through our clubs where we get to meet children and young people with a range of mental and physical disabilities. 

At our school we strive to meet the educational, psychological and social needs of our pupils, whilst also providing respite for their parents, carers or guardians. 

We welcome you to our world and hope you stay to take a look around!
