Welcome to Clay Hill School

Clay Hill School is an independent, specialist day school for young people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC), Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and associated complex needs. We provide education for up to 25 young people aged 5 to 19 years. The school is also responsible for education at a 16-bed CAMHS unit, which forms part of The Priory Hospital Southampton.

Residential placements are available on either a weekly, termly, or 52 week basis for up to 14 young people at our two on-site children’s homes.

We provide a warm and welcoming, yet structured environment, which encourages children and young people to develop the social, educational and practical skills they require to enjoy and achieve.

Clay Hill School is located near Lyndhurst, Hampshire. Enjoying a picturesque setting in extensive grounds in the New Forest, the school is still well-positioned for easy access to the M27 and M3. London is approximately two hours’ drive, or one and a half hours by train and the school is just five minutes from Brockenhurst train station.
