About Us

Why is a new special school needed?

There is an increase in the number of children who have speech, language and communication needs who require specialist provision.  Currently, there are no special schools in Richmond or Kingston who meet the needs of these children within the average cognitive ability range; they have to travel further afield. These children and their families deserve a specialist educational setting within the local community.

What will it offer?

Capella House School will offer a specialist language-focussed environment with a collaborative, class-based approach to the delivery of speech and language therapy. It will provide specialist teaching, speech & language and occupational therapies.  Class sizes will be small and will enable learners to focus on a differentiated curriculum, including aspects of the national curriculum, designed to support their individual needs. All pupils will work towards nationally recognised accreditations including GCSEs, BTECs and vocational courses.

Part of The Auriga Academy Trust

Clarendon is a community special school for 140 pupils aged four to 16 with moderate learning difficulties, many of whom have additional complex needs, including autism.  The school manages an offsite centre: Gateway, which is for pupils aged 11-16 co-located with Twickenham Academy. 

Strathmore is a community special school for 95 learners with complex learning difficulties.  Many pupils have an additional diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or have additional physical and sensory disabilities.
