Gretton School welcomes autistic children and young people aged from 5 to 19 years old, as weekly boarders or as day students.

The school provides individually tailored programmes of education, care and therapy.​ Class sizes are small with high staff to student ratios.


There is a purposeful, calm atmosphere in school where students have fun, are expected to work hard, learn new skills and knowledge and to behave in an appropriate manner.

Gretton School

"Leaders have high expectations of what pupils can achieve and provide well for their academic achievement". Ofsted, 2020

Students are supported by a hard-working team of teachers, teaching assistants, a behaviour support team and administration staff. All staff share a responsibility of raising standards and keeping self-esteem high, but also in making life at school structured, fun and enjoyable.


"Often, pupils have not had an easy time previously in the education system. Many have lost years of education and some have significant gaps in their learning. Pupils make rapid gains at this school." Ofsted, 2o2o

Our most recent Ofsted Inspection confirmed that Gretton is a Good school and we’d like to invite you to make an appointment to experience the nurturing environment and enthusiasm within school.

It is a privilege to be Gretton’s Headteacher and I hope that when children leave us, having achieved their very best, that they look back with positive and happy memories of the people, events and opportunities here.

I look forward to meeting you.
