Education at Eagle House School (Sutton) has a strong focus on building skills in readiness for each learner’s future and life beyond school. Our co-educational specialist provision for 16 to 19 year old learners supports young people who have a primary diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder. The majority of our learners move into the 6th Form from our school but we also welcome new learners who wish to join at 6th Form.
We are a specialist independent day school based in Motspur Park, New Malden and Euston, London for children with speech, language and communication difficulties. Our site at Motspur Park is for children aged 3 to 19 years while our Euston site currently has children aged 3 to 8 years. Our school has a unique atmosphere created by its totally dedicated, highly professional and caring staff. We acknowledge specific strengths and support individual weaknesses, so that each child “blossoms” and has the opportunity to fulfil his or her potential.

Nickel Support is a not-for-profit community interest company supporting adults with learning disabilities. We offer day opportunities from 10am-6pm Monday-Friday. We offer a variety of sessions, all of which serve the purpose of developing social enterprises which are developed and run by the trainees themselves. The aim of the sessions is to develop skills and confidence with the trainees, with a particular focus on employment. The trainees interact with customers, develop computer skills, grow in confidence, learn about pricing and numeracy, develop writing skills, undertake physical exercise, understand the values of team and above all have fun! By teaching the trainees the basics of business we are supporting them to develop their own social enterprises.
