Stratford on Avon or Warwickshire AS schools/

My son is in mainstream education and is due to go up to secondary in September 2012. He is Statemented and it's our intention he goes to a school some 25 miles away which is mainstream secondary, with an Autism Unit attached. It's a good school. I've viewed it 4 times. We'd still need to go through the request procedure....it's not certain, even with a statement that he'd get a place.

I'm divorced (re-married) and my ex lives outside Stratford. He sees ds twice a month. They have a good relationship but my 10yr old ds finds leaving home every fortnight very very difficult. I had an idea over the weekend that, we might move nearer to his dad. But, I don't know of any schools which have that mainstream/asd attatchment, in a 20 mile radius of Stratford/Warwick.

Anyone help me out? At the moment, it's just a pipe dream but, if we're going to have to move house for him to attend the school we've chosen so far (IF he gets a place) then, moving nearer to dad is also an option.

Thanks all smile

What! NO special needs schools in Warwickshire? They not allowed? Maybe stay in South Cheshire then. We have some excellent schools here!!
