Welcome to Sedgemoor Manor School. We deliver specialist educational, vocational, and therapeutic and care services for young people aged 10-19 years with a diagnosis of autism and associated complex needs.
Our school is located in the peaceful and idyllic Somerset countryside near the town of Highbridge. Whilst we benefit from a beautiful rural location, the school has good transport links, being situated just a five minutes’ drive from the M5 motorway.
We are proud that the young people leaving our school all move on to further learning or employment.
Personalised learning that transforms lives
Sedgemoor Manor School transforms the lives of young people by empowering them to break negative cycles and achieve their potential. With our specialist support, students build the confidence, resilience and independence skills to pursue their passions and aspirations, unlocking a range of exciting opportunities for their future. We are proud that young people leaving our school all move on to further learning or employment.
Our young people are at the heart of all that we do and we know that no two students with autism are the same: each young person has their own unique needs, strengths, preferences and ambitions. Students thrive at Sedgemoor Manor School because we are committed to delivering education and support that is carefully and skilfully tailored to them as an individual.
Trusting and positive relationships
Ofsted has recognised the exceptional working relationships our staff build with students which encourage them to love learning again. These positive connections make young people feel secure, valued and confident to be themselves at school, often for the first time. They learn in a warm and welcoming community where they are listened to and understood.
As they undertake their learning journey with our school, we work in partnership with each young person, their families and the professionals that support them.
An idyllic location for learning
Sedgemoor Manor School is a converted manor house in one of the most beautiful areas of the country. Our extensive grounds provide opportunities for rewarding life experiences that broaden our students’ horizons, including caring for animals, a forest school, gardening and horticulture.
