Welcome to The Hawthorns School and thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted to have opened a new school for children with autism between the ages of 7 and 16 in the centre of Chelmsford in January 2023. We are dedicated to each individual pupil’s academic and personal progress within a rich, evolving and purposeful curriculum, which supports wellbeing alongside learning and achievement.
All our pupils will have the development of their social communication skills as a core need as well as requiring adaptations to engage with learning. The promotion of these skills will, therefore, be at the heart of everything we do. Our commitment is to work together with families to prepare our young people for adulthood with the skills, knowledge, confidence and understanding to navigate our complex world. We will continually strive to provide high quality learning experiences so pupils can engage and learn alongside the support they require to succeed and achieve.
Pupils can build lifelong skills and confidence that will enable them to be happy, healthy citizens who contribute to society.
With very best wishes, Mrs Diane Rigg, Headteacher
