We look after your career too.  With our career pathways you, like many of our staff, can go from support worker up to CEO level with guidance and learning supplied by us!

Sedgemoor Manor is a specialist day school registered for 45 young people who have needs associated with a diagnosis on the autistic spectrum/SPLD and are aged between 10 and 18 years. Our tailored approach means we are able to support young people with a wide range of learning difficulties. We accept that young people who are referred to us may have previously experienced a ‘cycle of failure’ and our aim is to have a transformational impact on their lives by them experiencing a ‘culture of success’. We support all young people to achieve successful outcomes so that they can progress to experience fulfilling and rewarding lives.

We offer bespoke packages of education and therapy for our young people. We strongly believe that some individuals will always struggle to ‘fit in’ to existing structures and will only thrive when their provision is tailored to their specific needs and circumstances.

We warmly welcome our students into our community, which is underpinned by a culture of outstanding relationships, nurture and unconditional high regard.

We are proud to offer a broad range of on-site therapy. Our therapy team includes a Speech and Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Counsellor/Art Therapist, Mindfulness Coach and we are embedding the Thrive Approach across the school.
