About Our School
At The Tower School, we provide education to young people aged between 11 and 18 who have autism and associated conditions. We strive to deliver a pupil-centred education in a safe, friendly place, where all our young people love to learn.
Set in the town of Epping with easy access to the acres of woodland in Epping Forest, we believe that success in the classroom depends on positive relationships between staff and pupils. Our ‘wrap-around’ holistic approach to supporting our pupils ensures that all needs are met. Our team are highly trained in trauma-informed approaches, de-escalation, and therapeutic parenting, as well as being reflective practitioners. Supporting the team at The Tower School is a wealth of expertise from across the wider Options Autism and Outcomes First Group.
With small classes of no more than seven pupils, our school has places for up to 62 young people; teachers can creatively tailor lessons to ensure that all individual learning needs are addressed and met. We can also schedule one-to-one interventions and therapy sessions to meet the broader individual needs of each young person to meet the minimum requirements for each young person’s Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
