" Secondary ASC children of East Kent can now engage in a specialised curriculum that develops independence through learning transferable life skills that also brings about the highest possible academic progress and standards "

Welcome to Life Skills Manor for Autism

Registered with the Department for Education and opening in January 2022

The journey for Life Skills Manor School started in 2015 proposed as a Special Free School.

The original proposer team consisted of educational experts that had a range of experience in SEND but more importantly consisted of parents with children with Autism.

During the original proposal the steering group formulated a Life Skills curriculum based upon the views of parent led groups hence the life skills element of the school. Unfortunately the project was shelved pending political obstacles associated with Free Schools.

In 2020, we were able to proceed with the Life Skills Manor proposal but in the form as a self-governing provision. We are delighted to report that we are now an independent special registered with the Department for Education and opening in January 2022.

As a parent of a child with Autism I understand the challenges we face on a daily basis and we have designed Life Skills Manor in the knowledge of our children becoming independent as they move into adulthood. Our school has been in the making for many years and we are so excited to announce that we are ready to open our doors in January 2022 to deliver our curriculum that embeds ‘skills for life’.
