Saplings Goresbridge Admissions

Saplings Special School Goresbridge is funded by the Department of Education and Skills. We are a co-educational specialist school, catering for children between the ages of 4 and 18, and providing quality education for pupils with autism and complex needs. We offer child-centred, autism specific education, drawing on a range of interventions which are personalised to each individual child. Children are actively encouraged to participate in community life, and are supported to be as independent as possible. The school works very closely with parents and other professionals in order to ensure the best personal and educational outcomes for our children.
