Alderwasley Hall School

Alderwasley Hall School and Sixth Form Centre is an independent specialist day and residential school for young people aged 5 to 19 years with Specific Language Disorders, Asperger’s Syndrome and High Functioning Autistic Spectrum Disorders, all of whom experience complex speech, language and communication needs. We also have expertise in working with children and young people with Acquired Brain Injury.

The School and Sixth Form Centre are located on separate sites within five miles of  each other and are situated in Derbyshire, close to the towns of Matlock, Belper and Wirksworth. The City of Derby is also within easy access.

The aim of all aspects of the curriculum is to prepare students for adult life by fulfilling their social and academic potential. Young people are supported to develop and achieve  academic  and  vocational plans, develop independent living skills  and a clear sense of identity enabling them to contribute to society in adult life.

The individual needs of students, as set out in their Education, Care and Health Plan are met through Therapy and educational programmes, underpinned by high quality care.
