The Hive

The Hive is a our specalist unit for children on the autism spectrum.

We opened in November 2017, initially catering for a small number of children, but we now host 18 pupils, from reception to Year 6.


  • 2 classrooms set up according to TEACCH principles
  • a sensory room
  • a soft play room
  • an outdoor learning garden
  • therapy/quiet room for more individualised learning
  • high staff-pupil ratio

What we provide:

  • A highly differentiated curriculum to ensure the needs of all pupils are met and that all pupils progress to their fullest potential.
  • An individualised approach to encourage independence and life skills.
  • Fun and exciting learning opportunities, which help to remove the emotional barriers and to ensure a positive, safe and respectful environment for every pupil.
  • Specialised teaching approaches using ASD specific strategies such as TEACCH, SCERTS, Intensive Interaction, Makaton and PECS.
  • Inclusion opportunities in the mainstream school in relevant year groups.
  • A commitment to working with parents through regular communication and workshops.
  • A multidisciplinary approach to learning to ensure speech, language and communication needs are met, as well as motor skill development.
