Thank Goodness for The Lady Byron!!! After years of being misunderstood, let down and penalised for a diagnoses he cannot help we have finally found a school our son can be himself and he is flourishing. We cannot thank all the school team enough for all there hard work. Our son wants to go to school for the 1st time and is gaining self worth and esteem whilst learning in a caring environment.

We are SO grateful for the Lady Byron School and the wonderful staff who work there. Before starting at LBS our child had been out of school for two years due to extreme anxiety and the staff have worked tirelessly to support them and us. As many of the pupils have struggled with anxiety the school have a transition period for each pupil to help them feel secure and comfortable. This includes playing board games and building up social experiences before starting the more academic subjects. Academic subjects are taught daily in small groups which gives each pupil an individualised education (e.g. my child in Yr 7 is the level of a Yr 9 pupil in English but struggles in Maths so the lessons are tailored for her). By far the majority of the staff are highly experienced in working with autistic children in educational settings and are overseen and supported by qualified teachers and tutors. All have been unwaiveringly patient and supportive. We have had frequent meetings, emails and phone calls to ensure that we are all working together. We could not wish for a better school and wish that every child could be given the access to such individualised education. The focus on mental health and preparation for adulthood is combined so well with preparation for a wide variety of GCSEs to enable the pupils to thrive academically without the burnout that autistic students can struggle with in a mainstream school.

We are beyond grateful to this school and the way they have helped our child in so many ways. They are safe and happy there and the staff work hard to provide a nurturing environment for them. They have a time table individualised to incorporate their own interests, English and Maths, as well as teaching about social and emotional challenges they face. We have noticed a huge positive change in them since they started!

Cannot thank this school enough for the support and help with getting my child settled , nothing is too much trouble & where mainstream couldn’t fit my child’s learning , this school stepped up with massive positive changes at home & school , keep up the good work 👍, settling wasn’t easy for our child but the brilliant communication & fitting a plan to our child’s need was never too much trouble

You are all doing an amazing job! 😃 Our child was whistling happy songs this morning while getting ready and on the journey to school. It was very heart warming as they were happy and care free preparing for their day at school for the first time in their life! Rather than the usual high anxiety, stressing and worrying. Thank you!
