About us

Overley Hall School is an independent special school for pupils between the ages of 8 and 19 who have autism, learning disabilities and a range of complex needs.  Overley Hall School shares its site with Wellingtonia Children’s Home and the Woodlands Adult provision which offers experiential residential care for young adults 19+.  

Our aim is to encourage individuality and make learning motivating and fun; We nurture, build on strengths and interests and target individual needs through providing a person–centred approach and curriculum. Our therapeutic community nurtures holistically and ensures access to learning opportunities which enrich young lives.

We are committed to preparing our children for their next stages of life, in particular to be able to use a more ‘functional level of communication’ and to be better emotionally prepared to live with as much independence as possible.

We hope that you find your visit to our website helpful and that it provides you with a good insight to our school; enjoy our virtual tour and prospectus to familiarise yourself with Overley Hall, its school, children’s home and beautiful grounds.
