Where Autism is a strength not a weakness.

The Lady Byron School is committed to supporting young people to achieve their personal best by preparing them to make a successful transition into adulthood with the confidence and skills to live an independent fulfilling life.

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to The Lady Byron School. We are an independent specialist school for young people with a diagnosis of autism and an Education, Health and Care Plan.

We are committed to delivering outstanding practice to create a safe and secure environment to enable our young people to flourish. We aim to do this by offering an holistic, inclusive approach with a bespoke, broad, balanced and person-centred curriculum. 

This ensures our young people have the best possible opportunity to succeed, and are well prepared for life beyond school.

Our website should give you all the information you need about our school and the amazing young people we work with. However, please do not hesitate to contact us if you require anything more or have any suggestions or comments.
