Welcome to Sketchley School and Forest House

Sketchley School and Forest House provides specialist support for both boys and girls aged 8 to 19 years who are on the autistic spectrum, who may also have challenging behaviour as a result of their communication difficulties and a lack of social understanding.

Located in the quiet villages of Sketchley and Narborough in Leicestershire, Sketchley School and Forest House has excellent links with the M69/M6/M1 motorways and Hinckley train station, which is only one mile away. We offer a safe and structured environment within mature private grounds for young people to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible and make real life choices as they reach adulthood.

Each young person is viewed as an individual with their specific needs being met in appropriate ways, with individuality being encouraged. Independence is fostered and the young people are encouraged to strive towards their full potential. At all times, Sketchley School and Forest House recognises the special needs of each individual and ensures that the learning opportunities provided for them and the targets set reflect and address these needs.

We follow a bespoke curriculum based on academic, therapeutic, life skills and engagement work. The aim is to raise standards in the education of young people with autism and help them to lead meaningful, fulfilling and happy lives.
