    About Prior's Court

    Prior's Court was set up by Founding Patron Dame Stephanie Shirley, whose vision of a centre of excellence for children with autism became reality when Prior's Court School opened in 1999.

    We have since grown with the opening of Prior's Court Young Adult Provision in 2011 and now support around 90 young people with autism aged between 5-25 years.

    Since opening, our support team has grown from around 20 to 500 and we have built a reputation as a leading educational, vocational, and residential facility for young people with autism.

    Working with our young people can be challenging but extremely rewarding.
