Durants School is a maintained special school that caters for 127 pupils, (over two sites – Southgate and a provision at Winchmore School) from the age range of 11-19. We are a secondary autism specific provision in the borough of Enfield. In conjunction with Enfield Local Authority, the school has recently developed a brand new site in Southgate. This is a state of the art autism provision with facilities such as a rebound therapy room, sensory integration room, life skills and creative art rooms.
At Durants we are proud to be working with our young people and their families. Our passion is to ensure that all the pupils attending Durants are supported to manage themselves, be resilient as well as achieve academically to the best of their ability.
Durants promotes a holistic environment for young people with autism, their families and the necessary outside agencies. Durants offers a person-centred curriculum that enables all students supported by their families to achieve and forge their own path into society and adulthood.
The strength of Durants lies in the quality of our staff, who work relentlessly to improve the outcomes and life chances for all our students. Our commitment is to work in partnership with our parents to maximise the potential for everyone and to prepare our students to make the transition into adult life.
If your child is of secondary school age and has a diagnosis of autism please contact us to discuss how we can support them either at Durants or within our satellite provision at Winchmore School. We are always happy to show you round our school.
