Here at Lighthouse School Leeds we offer an exceptional, personalised education and learning for autistic (ASC) children, 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 an Education Health and Care Plan or a Statement of Special Educational Needs 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

Local Authorities make the final decision on placements.

Prospective Parents Events

At Lighthouse School we run a number of prospective parents events and tours over the school year, which give an overview of the school and its ethos.

At the moment we are unable to invite families in for our traditional prospective parents meetings. We have a virtual tour and our prospective parents meeting power point presentation which you can view here, which will give an overview of the school and its ethos.
