Here at Lighthouse School Leeds we offer an exceptional, personalised education and learning for children with an autistic spectrum condition (ASC), or related communication disorder.

Abilities will range from moderate learning disability to high functioning and the curriculum will be tailored around each pupil’s needs. All students must have a diagnosis of ASC or related communication disorder and be within the stated age range of 11 – 19 years old.

All students attending Lighthouse School require a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education Health and Care Plan from their local authority. This document identifies the school as the most appropriate provision for the student based on having high needs.

Our priorities for pupils attending Lighthouse School Leeds are:

  • Personalised transition programme to help each new pupil settle in to Lighthouse
  • Pupils taught in groups which match their ability rather than their age
  • Flexible teaching which responds to the needs of each pupil within a class
  • All teaching occurs in small groups
  • High staff ratios are in all groups including a teacher, senior tutor and a number of tutors
  • Providing a personalised curriculum for students
  • Developing appropriate qualifications for students
