Inscape House School

Inscape House School supports young people aged 5 to 19 who have autism and associated communication needs.  

 

At Inscape it’s our vision to provide a learning environment that places our young people at the heart of everything we do, where they feel valued and can thrive. Our mission is to champion their rights, needs and ambitions. 

 

We support young people to reach their full potential, by understanding that they have a distinct way of thinking and perceiving the world. 

 

Our creative approach allows us to inspire and engage students in activities that are suited to their individual needs and personalities, because we can personalise our provision to meet the unique needs of each learner. 

 

Inscape House School is part of the Together Trust, a charity that provides care, special education and support to vulnerable children, young people and adults across the North West. Our campus, based in Cheadle, is an environment that enables learning, maximises independence and celebrates all of our student’s achievements. 

 

Accredited by the National Autistic Society, we provide holistic learning programmes shaped to fit each student and delivered by our skilled multidisciplinary staff team. We live and breathe Together Trust’s values. We are positive, professional, passionate and supportive. 

We use an eclectic and flexible approach. We believe this is necessary to support the development of the young people who study with us. Our teaching reflects the individual needs of all our students. 

 

Alongside championing our students’ academic progress, we help them to understand their emotions and develop coping strategies.Our approach helps our students achieve positive outcomes. 

 

The distinct and differing needs of our students guide our style of teaching and learning. This means that our curriculum is varied and we use a range of effective approaches to support our young people and enable them to learn. 

 

We teach in small class groups of no more than eight students. The group size will depend on age and key areas, such as level and style of communication. Students may have individualised timetables and one-to-one tuition, balanced with small group work or whole group activities. 

 

Our students are here to prepare for the future they want. We’re here to help make that happen. Step by step, we help our learners conquer their barriers, go beyond their expectations and own their unique success. We do this through our bespoke curriculum. 

We offer a broad range of subjects centred on the national curriculum. At Key Stage 4 and 5 (14 to 19 years-old) students have the opportunity to complete a range of different qualifications through nationally recognised awards. Alongside our academic curriculum, we also teach communication, social and life skills. 

 

Each class group has a teacher and typically two educational assistants who will work with the students on a daily basis. We also have specialist teachers for different areas of the curriculum.

Eligibility: 

Inscape House School meets the needs of children and young people, aged 5 to 19 years, with autism spectrum conditions and related social communication difficulties.  

Admissions do not depend upon a diagnosis of an autism spectrum condition but upon a common pattern of special educational needs.   

 

We welcome contact from parents and professionals who are seeking places for young people at the school, as it gives us the opportunity to explain more about ourselves and to answer any questions that you may have. 

 

Before a pupil starts at Inscape House School, we carry out initial assessments. This is done by talking with parents/carers and the pupil, when possible, as well as speaking to other professionals who work with the young person. This way we can prioritise the support that will be needed for developing robust, effective transition arrangements. Pupils undergo comprehensive assessments that look at the child as whole. A multidisciplinary team is involved with this, including teachers, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, educational psychology and positive behaviour support specialists.
