GLADE School (ASC)

GLADE School in Totton, Southampton specialises in educating students aged between 11 - 19 with Autistic Spectrum Condition.

About Us

In 2019, our school was the first in Hampshire to receive an Autism-friendly award from the National Autistic Society.

We recognise the importance of helping pupils with autism to develop problem-solving skills to promote independence both in school and in the transition to adult life. We strongly believe in creating an individualised programme to meet each child’s needs adapting a unique ‘autistic curriculum’. This not only captures the pupils learning needs but also addresses social, emotional and communication needs of children and young people with autism, and nurtures their independence and well-being.

Reputation Matters

Professionally Qualified Staff

Our staff are regularly trained in courses and techniques to enable effective practice in supporting students to make good progress both academically and socially. The school promotes joint working with specialist health practitioners and have their own therapy team, which includes a Speech and Language Therapist, an Occupational Therapist, Music Therapist, ABA Therapist and Play Therapist.

Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) Therapy

We can offer ABA Therapy as a specialised intervention if this is requested by parents or the LEA for individual young people with autism. Fair Ways has a trained therapist, with over 17 years’ experience designing individualised ABA programs for young people with autism. Young people on an ABA programme will have a full assessment, with data analysis taken from specific behaviours and intervention programs designed and overseen by the therapist and trained staff team.

  • Pupils’ personal development is prioritised, particularly the development of social skills. The curriculum includes lots of opportunities to understand and thrive in the wider community. There are carefully planned and managed opportunities for pupils to learn to interact with others.
