Forest Bridge School is a Special Free School for children and young people with a primary diagnosis of Autism. In 2015-2016, the school will cater for a maximum of 38 pupils between the ages of 4 and 13 years. When the school is full in the school year 2018-19, it will cater for a maximum of 96 pupils between the ages of 4 and 16 years.
The aim of the school is to provide a suitable environment with a high level of therapeutic support and excellent teaching to allow pupils with Autism to achieve their full potential and to make the most of their intelligence, focus and skills. Forest Bridge School will help each pupil that leaves the school to progress into training, employment or further education.
Teaching and learning is based on the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and the National Curriculum. We aim for each pupil to make above expected levels of progress in the EYFS and each Key Stage of the National Curriculum and to leave the school with either GCSEs or equivalent qualifications.
Forest Bridge's temporary site is on the current Oldfield Primary School site in Bray: Chiltern Road, Maidenhead, SL6 1XA. The permanent site from September 2017 is located on the grounds of Berkshire College of Agriculture, Burchetts Green, Maidenhead, SL6 6QR.
