About Lavender Lodge School

Lavender Lodge School is an independent specialist day school providing high quality education for boys and girls. Based in South London, the school meets the needs of pupils with a primary diagnosis of autism and additional needs such as ADHD, speech and language difficulties, sensory issues and associated behavioural difficulties.

A big warm welcome to our website

A big warm welcome to our small, specialist school providing children with autism a calm and nurturing environment where we witness them ease into education and ultimately flourish.

We draw upon the experience and expertise of our staff team, who enable our children to access their personalised curriculum, making progress educationally and, in tandem, developing skills in social communication, allowing them to build friendships and meaningful relationships with peers and teaching staff, often for the first time.

We encourage our pupils to explore new hobbies and interests to develop passions, and in doing so they recognise endless opportunities, giving them a sense of intrigue and enthusiasm. As they reach milestones in their new activity, we celebrate together, and through this, they develop a sense of achievement.

Working closely with parents and carers continues to be our key strength. We provide advice and support and stay in touch to keep them updated on progress and achievements, helping them realise that their child’s opportunities to grow and succeed are limitless.
