Headteacher's Welcome


Jackie Smith, our Headteacher.

I am delighted to welcome you to our website, full of great information about our school.

The students are at the heart of all we do at Baskerville. We have a dedicated, specialist staff team who support our wonderful students to achieve aspirational, personal and social outcomes.

Baskerville is a secondary age special school for students with autism, with a diverse range of abilities. All of our students are unique and we aim to personalise and tailor their learning and provision. Our outstanding residential provision offers an extended curriculum to identified students.

We have a range of excellent facilities to provide students with the best educational experiences and learning opportunities. Our learning environment is calm, welcoming and safe.

We have specialist rooms for: Art, Food Technology, Science, Computing, Horticulture and Design Technology, and a gym for PE. Our Peace Garden offers a place of tranquillity and reflection and our glorious outdoor areas, complete with play and exercise equipment, enrich students’ lives. Forest Schools offers our students a great outdoor learning curriculum.

We work in collaboration with external agencies, Governors, parents/carers and other educational establishments, to provide the best education and care for our students.

I hope you find all the information you need about Baskerville, but if you have any questions please get in touch by one of the ways listed on the Contact Us page.
