The Romsey School

Mainstream secondary school with specialist autism resourced provision, aged 11-16


The Romsey School is a comprehensive secondary school for pupils aged 11-16, with specialist ASD provision, which sets out to teach pupils in a well-ordered happy and caring environment, and aims to give every pupil high levels of achievement combined with social success. The school enjoys excellent academic success with results amongst the best in Hampshire.

There is a strong special needs department with an excellent reputation in the County. It provides pupil support through withdrawal and in-class support. It also draws on expertise from outside school. There is a particular focus on raising the literacy levels of pupils who enter the school below Key Stage 2 Level 4 to enable them to gain full access to the curriculum. All pupils who are behind in their literacy and numeracy are given support through the Pupil Premium Programme.

In September 2002 a new provision known as “The Base” was opened in a purpose built area for small numbers of pupils on the autistic spectrum. Entry to the provision is via a child’s Education Health & Care Plan and is determined by the County placement panel. The curriculum is personalised for each of these children. Where possible, they are educated in mainstream lessons with specialist support. Additional activities are provided for them, and we develop a close partnership with their parents. There is also the opportunity for one to one tutoring and support in social time. The Resources Provision has an excellent reputation and achieved an “outstanding” grade in our most recent inspection.
