Our services – what we do

Prior’s Court is a registered charity providing education and residential care for autistic young people with complex needs, aged 5-25. Set within a 50-acre site in Berkshire, we have extensive bespoke facilities to help the young people we support to be healthy, happy, more independent and have the opportunity to work.

Our purpose – why we exist

To transform the lives of autistic young people with complex needs, helping them to build a brighter, more independent future.

Our philosophy – how we achieve this

Prior’s Court exists to transform the lives of the autistic young people with complex needs in our care; to help them achieve the impossible and give their families the magic moments they never thought they would have.

We understand that the little things are actually the big things for an autistic young person, and we celebrate them as major milestones. A daily life skill gained or an anxiety conquered today is a stepping stone towards tomorrow’s work placement, or a shared special occasion with family.

Prior’s Court never stays still. We are ambitious for our young people and aspire to be a global leader for autistic young people with complex needs. We want to deliver outcomes for them beyond our imagination; to help transform the lives of even more autistic young people, and to develop practice improvements which we can share across the world.
