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 with the opening of Prior's Court Young Adult Provision in 2011.

We offer a range of specialist services within a residential children’s home, school and adult provision to support children and young people severely challenged by their autism.


We are a forward thinking, innovative organisation and are seeking two Trustees who share our goals, values and determination to impact positively the lives of children and young people with autism and their families.

The focus of the new roles will be on education and residential care and of young people with special needs, so you will need significant experience in one or more of these key areas.
