Empowering autistic young people to develop their independence, self-esteem, and confidence through a relentless focus on learning and caring.
Welcome to Bankside School
Bankside School is an independent specialist school in Worcestershire for autistic young people aged 11-18. Part of Options Autism, Bankside School provides a therapeutic educational approach within a custom-built environment with specialised facilities to enable students to flourish.
Every child and young person should be given the opportunity to access a relevant and personalised education pathway, which enables them to reach their potential and aspirations and gain the skills and confidence to embrace the world in which we live.
We believe in education as a driver for personal development and social improvement. We value effective teaching, commitment to learning and sharing of good practice. We are committed to inclusivity, honesty, compassion and respect for others in everything we do.
To meet the full range of needs that individual learners may have in an inclusive and therapeutic environment. This is essential to meet their social, emotional and health needs, in addition to learning needs. In order to achieve this, our inclusive approach to learning integrates the skills of both teaching staff and care staff, together with a wider team of partners from the community.
