Who We Are

Brookways School London is part of the Kedleston Group and opened early 2018.

We are an independent specialist day school in North Cheam, London designed with a state-of-the-art learning environment which has been created to meet the needs of young people with autism.

Our school offers a calm, quiet, low arousal, safe, positive and nurturing place where young people can learn and grow.

Here at Brookways we are experienced at working with young people who have been out of education for a period of time, or who have become school phobic. We pride ourselves on the support we give for reintegration back into school and provide young people with opportunities to develop friendships

Our class sizes are very small and classrooms are ‘enabling environments’ with sensory lighting, muted colours, individual work stations and visual timetables. The curriculum is designed to meet the specific academic, social, emotional and sensory needs of each individual child.

Through close partnerships with families, professionals and the wider community, Brookways ensure that all young people develop and thrive.

Our fantastic Headteacher Melanie Whitfield is an Anna Kennedy Autism Hero 2018 award winner in the Top Education Category, read more about her on Our Staff page.
