The Lion Works School

The Lion Works School logo

The Lion Works School is an Independent Specialist school. We are part of an ethical and progressive company that believes it can achieve real change for students and their families.

We are a unique, progressive and inspirational place that welcomes students who have an ASD diagnosis or who present with needs that makes our specialised approach appropriate to them. The student is at the centre of everything we do and every decision we make. We offer no quick fixes or false promises. Instead we offer support, understanding, space, patience, care, attention and passion for what our students can achieve.

Our students are brilliant and interesting young people. No two students are the same. Some are confident, some less so. Some are good at sport, some are not. Some are creative, some are practical. Some are funny, some prefer to be serious. Some will get married, some will choose not. Some will achieve great success, some will be happy and settled. Some will drive cars, some will cycle. Some will own businesses, some will struggle to find a career that's right for them. Some will learn to ride horses, some will be artists. Some like science, some like to draw. Some like to draw in science. They all happen to have additional needs.
