About Us

Welcome to the Woodside School website. 

Woodside School was founded by someone who had close family with autism and many years personal experience of autism and learning disabilities.


Woodside is a positive, happy and stimulating place where children learn to shine.

Woodside only accepts children between the age of 8-18 with autism or a learning disability. Recognising the very unique needs of each child, we provide a bespoke educational plan for every child on acceptance. That does not mean children are supported alone, far from it, but it does mean they receive the special focus which allows small miracles to happen.

Registration was approved by OFSTED in April 2021. The school has accepted it’s first two young children already. The maximum number of children the school will accept is 15.


The founder’s ethos is based on building a small, focussed, special school for special children.

All pupils who attend have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan.
