Headteacher’s welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to this website about Lokrum Fields, a specialist educational setting in the heart of rural Worcestershire.

As an experienced teacher, my work in previous mainstream and specialist environments made me very aware of a gap in provision for academically able students with autism and anxiety. I was passionate about the need to establish a setting where these young people could access education and thrive. Designed and developed by a hand-picked team of professionals and parents who share my vision for local education tailored to individual needs, Lokrum Fields is a unique and special place which fulfils that ambition.

Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and meets the requirements of most exam boards, with exciting content which is designed to ignite a desire to learn and achieve. We have wide and varied links with our community, and consolidate learning in a range of settings, particularly in the outdoors.

We offer a range of learning experiences at Key Stages 2 and 3 and a comprehensive package of GCSEs. We also offer enrichment opportunities including the Duke of Edinburgh and BTEC awards.

Alongside the academic studies we offer a life skills curriculum designed to equip students for life beyond Lokrum Fields. We believe that our unique setting gives our students the foundation they need for success in life and a future that they choose.

Our beautiful surroundings, skilled team and insightful therapists combine to provide the perfect environment for students to achieve their aspirations and become happy, fulfilled young people ready to make their way in the world. We believe that students must feel valued in order to be able to learn and achieve their academic potential.

If you would like to find out more about Lokrum Fields, please get in touch. I warmly welcome informal discussions about how we may be able to help you.

About Us


Lokrum Fields is a small co-educational day setting for academically able students with autism or related needs. We offer a personalised approach to learning which recognises students’ strengths and interests and enables them to achieve academic success.

Students benefit from high staff to student ratios and small classes, with highly-skilled specialist staff and on-site therapists. Our gentle therapy dog further supports student wellbeing. We work closely with students, families, and professionals to tailor the provision to each student, listening carefully and offering flexible child-centred solutions so that every student thrives.

Lokrum Fields is situated in beautiful grounds and overlooks open countryside, allowing our curriculum to embrace opportunities for outdoor learning. The calm feel of our rural surroundings is reflected in our low-sensory, uncrowded premises, where students can access sensory areas and individual workspaces as needed.

We celebrate all forms of personal growth and recognise the achievement of students developing resilience and independence. We teach life skills alongside a challenging academic curriculum and encourage every student to identify and realise their aspirations for the future.

Our low student numbers and large spaces make us ideally placed to minimise risks associated with COVID-19. We will continue to review all emerging guidelines and prioritise the well-being and safety of students and staff.
