Social Arts for Education is a study centre for children who have been withdrawn from mainstream school due to bullying and/or autism and other related conditions.  Students generally, have additional needs due to autism, anxiety disorders, fear of social situations and extreme shyness.
We are able to teach children from the age of 8 up to 16, depending on tutor availability. 
Our teaching methods and environment in which we teach reflect the SPELL framework constructed by the National Autistic Society.  The framework, which stands for Structure, Positive Expectations and Attitudes, Empathy, Low Arousal and Links, encourages an environment where children are at ease, understood by others and are open to a variation of life opportunities.
