Tadley Court school is set in a beautiful semi rural location with four acres of well maintained grounds.  We are a co-educational school specialising in the education and care of children and young people between the age of 5 and 19 years who are diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum with associated learning difficulties.  Our children and young people may also exhibit challenging behaviour as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding.

We offer a safe, structured and predicatable environment where students can develop the skills needed to live as independently as possible allowing them to make real life choices as they approach and reach adulthood.
