The Holmewood School, London welcomes students with a range of learning differences associated with high functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. We are registered for up to 50 students with our Outstanding Sixth Form provision occupying its own premises in Finchley Central . The vast majority of our students have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) which allows families to seek financial funding from their Local Authority. However, a statutory statement is not a requirement for admissions. Applications can be supported by independent assessment reports relevant to the individual. Our school does not discriminate between different social, cultural, ethnic or religious backgrounds, but actively embraces and celebrates these differences.
The Holmewood School London caters for children who are of average or above average cognitive ability and those that may have mild cognitive impairments (just below that of typically developing peers), aged between 7 and 19 with a diagnosis or overlapping diagnosis of language and communication difficulties and other difficulties associated with high functioning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.
Our focus is to provide experiences that parallel the mainstream provision with the additional focus on therapeutic programmes and a heavy emphasis on wellbeing, social skills and life skills.  
We invite all enquiries and work together with all families to ensure that we are the right choice for your child.
