Secondary in Surrey/Kingston - advice please!

Hello all,

This is my first ever post!

I'm looking for a secondary for my son who has Aspergers and dyspraxia and (not yet diagnosed) dysgraphia.

I don't want to find somewhere that will support his ASD but overlook the dysgraphia and vice versa.

He's currently accessing mainstream Y5 for 80% of the day. He has support in literacy but that's just so that the TA can scribe for him as he can't write/spell.

Other than that though, his learning is age appropriate. He's quite bright with a good understanding of language/comprehension etc. but definitely has some attention issues too.

He has OT needs too.

Schools I'm currently booked to look at are:

Hinchley Wood Secondary
Richard Challoner
Canbury School
St Philips
More House

I wondered if anyone had any other schools they might recommend or any insight in to any of the above?

Many thanks in advance,

Maybe Moor House, Oxted, and Blossom House?

Thank you so much for replying.

I don't think his speech and language need is great enough for Blossom House, but I will definitely look in to Moor House.

Really appreciated.
