Don't have experience of the East Anglian school but my son goes to the London school and the East Anglian school is set up by the former head from London. I am very strongly pro the London school which manages to take a group of children with fairly profound special needs and make them into a happy achieving whole with lovely staff who really know the children well. Lots of the children, like my son have tried mainstream schools with support and just not been able to manage, but have settled really well at the Centre. Its not the most academic of schools but personally I am more than willing to sacrifice that for seeing a happy boy who actually has friends and enjoys going to school.

I'm also keen on any feedback or experiences? We're also looking at Centre Acady as a possible option for our 11 year old son who has Aspergers.

the positives are that its very small, so no big classes. the problem i found, despite their promises, they are not very experienced in supporting children on the autistic spectrum.
