Newbury Manor School is a specialist school for young people aged 7 to 19 with autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). The school is located in a Georgian manor house set in extensive grounds with outbuildings in a beautiful, rural location near Frome in Somerset. Our tailored approach means we are able to support young people with a wide range of needs, from those who are broadly average in their ability to others, who have more severe learning difficulties.

We provide an environment where young people are offered safe, secure and predictable surroundings in which they can come to understand their own areas of difficulty and learn skills and techniques to overcome them. This ensures they are able to fulfil their potential socially, academically, physically and spiritually and enables them to build their self-esteem and self-belief. Our ethos was created in the belief that a positive, supportive, achieving culture is essential for good pupil progress. We seek to maximise independence and individual potential so pupils gain the skills to live happy, meaningful and fulfilling lives.
