Tram House School

Tram House School is an independent special school for autistic pupils aged 11 to 19.

Our fundamental belief is that every child and young adult has the potential to succeed and make a unique and significant contribution to society. We focus on understanding the journey that our pupils are on and the need to build their skills and understanding as far as possible, whilst equipping them with meaningful qualifications and the resilience to use these in their future lives.

Each of our pupils is provided with a truly personalised curriculum and one-to-one support by dedicated and passionate staff using teaching strategies underpinned by Behaviour Analysis.

Our school community is vital to us and this is built on a trusting relationship with parents and carers, as well as extending into the local community as we develop meaningful learning experiences for our young adults as they move into their adult lives.

All staff at Tram House School are committed to the development of pupil safety and well-being and this is at the heart of all work that we do.

Other notes

Interested parents are asked to attend an open day or arrange an individual visit to the school bringing with them their son or daughter’s latest statement and any relevant reports. The child or young adult will then visit for an informal assessment. This is a chance for us to assess whether we can meet their needs – we are looking to get a feel for how the child or young person reacts to the environment, will play and interact.
