“It is hard to explain quite how much Ripplevale means to us as parents, and the relief we feel in (our son) attending such a nurturing environment.” Parent

Our focus is on supporting students who have been diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum with associated conditions. We have a dedicated and committed team of teachers, therapists and support staff and take pride in providing a supportive and encouraging school environment where our pupils can learn and develop.

We are an independent specialist school with three campuses - Broadstairs in Thanet, Deal and Rochester - serving families across Kent and Medway.


Broadstairs, Thanet

Our Broadstairs campus welcomes students aged 6-11 years old and provides a stimulating and safe environment in which to learn and develop.


Our Deal campus welcomes students aged 11-18 years old (boys only) and offers a holistic education experience, tailored to meet individual needs and starting points. 


Our Rochester campus comprises both a school and college and welcomes students from 6-21+ years old. Our pupils develop the confidence to learn - for life!
