SEARCH Education Trust, is thrilled to announce its successful bid to open a new free school for autistic children with complex needs. This exciting development will provide education and support to 96 children aged 4-11 in the Enfield area.

With a strong track record in delivering exceptional educational provision, SEARCH Education Trust is well-positioned to create an outstanding learning environment for autistic children. The Grove School, an outstanding special school, and Heartlands High School, an excellent secondary school, are prime examples of the expertise and experience that will be brought to this new venture.

“We are very privileged to be given the opportunity to open this school,” expressed Elen Roberts, Interim CEO of SEARCH Education Trust. “Our team has the expertise, experience, and passion to ensure that this new provision will be excellent for the young people of Enfield. We would like to extend our thanks to the Department for Education and Enfield Council for their unwavering support thus far. We look forward to building strong partnerships across the borough to support our ongoing success.”

This new school aims to address these needs and provide a nurturing environment where every child can thrive. The team behind this initiative is committed to creating an inclusive, stimulating, and supportive educational setting that will enable each child to reach their full potential.

The new school will offer a broad and balanced curriculum, incorporating a range of subjects and learning experiences to cater to the diverse needs and interests of its children. Highly trained staff, will work collaboratively to deliver personalised support and interventions, ensuring that every child receives the individual attention they require.

In addition to academic excellence, the new school will prioritise the social and emotional well-being of its children. Building resilience, fostering positive relationships, and promoting independence will form integral parts of the school’s ethos. With a nurturing and inclusive community, children will be supported to develop the necessary skills to lead fulfilling lives both within and beyond the school environment.
