The Owlery (Resource Provision)

Welcome to the Owlery!

We are a Resource Provision for pupils with Autism. We call ourselves ‘The Owlery’. Every pupil has a personalised learning programme which allows them to either learn in the Owlery classroom or in their mainstream year group for a minimum of 40% each week.

We aim to provide a stable, happy and calm environment which allows all children to reach their full potential.


In addition to a differentiated national curriculum and pre-national curriculum, we offer an exciting range of additional opportunities which are crucial for the all-round development of the autistic learner:




In the Owlery, a variety of evidence-based initiatives and approaches are used to maximise the development of your children, including:

We love being in touch with our Owlery families, whether it is face-to-face, via telephone, email or through Tapestry Cherry Garden.
