Priory Lodge School

Welcome to Priory Lodge School

The Priory Lodge School is a co-educational, purpose-built day school in South West London for young people aged 7 to 19 with high functioning autism and associated needs.

We offer a stimulating and enriched education for older primary and secondary pupils, covering entry levels, GCSEs, BTEC options and, at post-16, some A levels. In addition we enable students to develop life and independent living skills.

Priory Lodge School's vision is reflected in its Mission Statement: ‘Enabling pupils to become successful learners, responsible citizens and confident individuals’, we work with passion and dedication to making a real impact on improving the lives of our pupils and their families.'

Achieving positive outcomes

We are delighted to share with you the news that 90% of our recent student leavers at Priory Lodge School have successfully moved on to mainstream further education (FE) college placements. After receiving exceptional results, our leavers are beginning a range of courses, including animation, catering, computer science, mechanical engineering, music production and performing arts.

Just under 70% of GCSE entries this year were also awarded a pass grade, including one student gaining six passes at Grade 5 and above is now going on to sixth form college.

Quotes from our latest Ofsted inspection report

Pupils’ starting points are usually below those typical for their age and pupils tend to have gaps in their education. Those who attend regularly in all of the key stages make good progress both academically and in developing their personal, social and life skills.

The curriculum is providing a good range of courses and qualifications which help to prepare pupils for adult life.

Teachers know their pupils’ individual needs well, both the academic and the personal and social. They tailor the approaches they use to help pupils make good progress.

A huge thank you

"I wanted to just drop you a message to say a huge thank you to all of the teachers and staff at Priory Lodge School who have supported Andrew* through his GCSEs, and helped him achieve his potential. Andrew is over the moon with his results and is soon to start sixth form college. Please do pass on my thanks to the team, who have all contributed to his success. I’m sure they would love to know that both myself and my son are really thankful for all they did to support him. Hopefully he will come back to visit you and share his experiences of the sixth form, when he’s settled in.”


Thanks to your hard work

“I am extremely grateful to the staff of Priory Lodge School for the excellent work both academically and socially that they provided my son during his time at Priory Lodge. Thanks to your hard work, communication and care, he achieved the GCSE results that he required for further education, and is now enjoying an engineering course at college. I feel that without your assistance he would still not be able to interact socially and certainly not achieve the GCSEs he did. I would, and do, recommend Priory Lodge School without hesitation.”
