The Auriga Academy Trust is founded on the vision that, through working together, we can provide outstanding learning experiences for the pupils and students in our communities, both now and in the future.

The Auriga Academy Trust was established on 1st October 2016. The trust comprises of two separate and distinct special academies:

  • Clarendon School
  • Strathmore School

Clarendon is a community special school for pupils aged 4 to 16 with moderate learning difficulties, many of whom have additional complex needs, including autism. The school manages an offsite centre: Gateway, which is for pupils aged 11-16 co-located with Twickenham Academy.

Strathmore is a community special school for learners with complex learning difficulties. Many pupils have an additional diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or have additional physical and sensory disabilities.

The Trust will also be opening Capella House which is a brand new special Free School, in September 2019 subject to the final approvals from the DfE.

Under the closer collaboration that the Auriga Academy Trust brings, there are enhanced opportunities for sharing best practice, expertise and professional development. We are building on our expertise and experience to become a recognised national leader in special needs education. We will give staff the opportunity to gain and share knowledge, to encourage and inspire each other and others in our wider community. And we are actively addressing the demand for future specialist provision now.
