Prior's Court was set up by Founding Patron Dame Stephanie Shirley, whose vision of a centre of excellence for children with autism became reality with the opening of Prior's Court School in 1999. We have since grown to support around 80 young people with autism aged between 5-25 years.
Since opening, our team has grown from around 20 to 600 and we have built a reputation as a leading edge educational, vocational, and residential facility for young people with autism. Our business support, estates and housekeeping teams have also grown to enable us to support the increasing number of young people we now support.
Our support teams are vital to the progress our young people make and many little moments of progress are celebrated every day. So what did you do today? And what do you want to be doing tomorrow? Join our teams and help make a difference to children and young people with severe autism.
Our work is defined by little moments of progress. To some people they might seem trivial. To us and our young people they are breakthroughs.Read more
