Welcome to our website; whether you are a pupil having a look at what other classes have been doing, a prospective parent deciding whether to send your child here or an existing parent who is looking to clarify your own questions.

Gretton School is a specialist school for autistic children and young people aged 5 to 19 years. Class sizes are small with high staff to student ratios. There is a purposeful, calm atmosphere in school where children have fun, are expected to work hard, learn new skills and knowledge and to behave in an appropriate manner.

Students are supported by a hard-working team of teachers, teaching assistants, a behaviour support team and administration staff. All staff share a responsibility of raising standards and keeping self-esteem high, but also in making life at school structured, fun and enjoyable.

“We believe you have changed the course of our son’s life and we will never be able to express the extent of our gratitude to you” Parent

Our most recent Ofsted Inspection confirmed that Gretton is a good school and we’d like to invite you to make an appointment to experience the nurturing environment and enthusiasm within school.

It is a privilege to be Gretton’s Principal and I hope that when children leave us, having achieved their very best, that they look back with positive and happy memories of the people, events and opportunities here.

I look forward to meeting you.

Ian Thorsteinsson
