About The Trust
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 135 pupils aged four 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. Clarendon also manages the Peripatetic Learning Support Assistant (PLSA) team who support young people with disabilities in mainstream schools across the Local Authority.
Strathmore is a community special school for 73 learners with complex learning difficulties. Many pupils have an additional diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or have additional physical and sensory disabilities.
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 attached Trust Business Plan outlines how we are going to achieve this.
