The Mendip School

A special school in Shepton Mallet, catering for pupils aged 4-19 who have been diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). The school, which opened in 2015, was started by a partnership between a group of local parents and Fosse Way School, a leading special school nearby, in order to allow more young people to access its highly successful model of education. It will cater for 120 pupils when full and has a strong focus on vocational subjects and developing independence to help students prepare for adult life once they leave school.
