Message from the Headteacher

Portrait of Ruth Bovill

Welcome to Heathermount

I am very proud to be telling you about our school. We are a non-maintained special school, owned by The Disabilities Trust. We specialise in providing a broad and balanced education for children and young people aged 5-19 years with Autistic Spectrum Conditions, including Asperger syndrome.

Heathermount is set within 14 acres of grounds in Sunningdale, near Ascot. We offer individual, bespoke learning packages to children and young people with autism, dependent upon ability, needs, and interests. All our students access the National Curriculum and all are entered for nationally recognised accreditation which include GCSEs. Running in tandem with the National Curriculum, we offer a range of vocational qualifications which include Skills for Working Life, Personal Learning and Thinking Skills and work experience opportunities.

For some students post 19, we offer Level 2 Work Based Learning Apprenticeships in Hospitality and Catering, Horticulture and Business Administration.

At Heathermount all students are helped to become independent, confident young adults who are able to leave school and enter the world of further education or employment. No student has left Heathermount and become a government statistic for Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET). All have either progressed to colleges of further education or into the world of work.

For more information, please see the Heathermount School website.
