You can be part of something special

At Aspris, we are dedicated to enhancing the life opportunities of the children and young people within our homes, and always celebrate uniqueness and diversity.

Our homes are part of a large children’s group with a national footprint offering significant development, support and progression opportunities. We also operate a fostering service and a number of high quality specialist schools in both the UK and the Middle East. 

Set in a semi-rural location within four acres of beautifully mature grounds, Tadley Court School is a co-educational school specialising in the education of pupils between the ages of 4 to 19, who are diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum with associated learning difficulties. Children may also have challenging behaviour as a result of their communication difficulties and lack of social understanding.

Within our safe, structured and predictable environment, pupils will develop the skills needed to live as independently as possible, so that they are able to enjoy their lives and make real life choices as they reach adulthood.

To succeed we need people who share our passion for making a difference. We are committed to safeguarding children and promoting their welfare and expect all staff to share this commitment.
