Prestwood Campus

Head of Campus - Ian McCaul

The Prestwood Campus is a recently refurbished, specialised, modern, well equipped school standing in five acres of parkland on the edge of the village of Prestwood. It is approximately 6 miles from Wendover Campus, 11 miles from Aylesbury, and 5 miles from High Wycombe.



This is the only surviving photograph of the family home that stood on the site in the 19th Century.

The house sat in formal gardens featuring specimen plants and trees. The building and gardens have not survived but the grounds do contain many mature trees and grass land today.


The school provides education and care for up to 60 young people. Above and beyond our specialist teaching areas there are onsite facilities including a sports hall, fitness suite, astro turf play area, football pitches, vocational classrooms, residential wing, cinema room and games room.

A strong team of teachers and support staff educate our young people in a safe and orderly fashion through a broad and balanced personalised curriculum. It is designed around the needs of the young person and is intended not only to give the students the qualifications and skills they need but also to build confidence and independence necessary for successful living. New pupils are assessed on entry. Specific programmes are designed, as required, to support their needs; we place particular emphasis on ensuring the young people are stable before they can access the curriculum.

Prestwood admits girls and boys.  All of our young people have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP).  The majority of the student body have a primary diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).  Many of our young people have further additional needs.

Post 16

We have a limited number of places that provide specialist provision at post 16 for those not ready for full time ‘mainstream education’. We aim to equip these young people with the tools necessary to allow them to integrate into college or the workplace. The school will make the decisions on admission. Post 16 is an important growth area for the academy.
