The Rise School

The Rise School is an all-through 4-19 special school in Hounslow for those with autism. The school, which opened in 2014, was established by a group of parents with the support of two charities that support people with autism: Dimensions and Ambitious about Autism. It can cater for up to 96 students and is situated alongside a local school so that its pupils can access some of their education in a mainstream school setting. At all ages, the school's social curriculum is a core subject, as the school believes this is essential for pupils' wellbeing and to ensure they develop holistically.
