Students are admitted to Sutherland House School through a referral by their Local Authority. Referrals are processed on a rolling basis and we operate flexible entrance dates.

The school only provides educational facilities for those children and young people with a diagnosis of autism, including those in the broader spectrum of the condition where the school can meet their special educational needs. We cater for the needs of students with a wide range of abilities and differences associated with the autism spectrum.

All students must be within our registered age range of 3 – 19 years.
