Uffculme School provides high quality education for children and young people with a primary diagnosis of ASD on three sites in the Kings Heath area of Birmingham.

Uffculme School offers co-education for children and young people of the ages 3 to 19 years from all parts of the city. Our students represent the wide cultural mix that makes up the general population of Birmingham. We are a successful school with a long and proven track record of providing high quality education for young people with ASD. The school has grown significantly over the last seven years and we now have a thriving secondary department with nearly 100 students. We currently cater for a total of 188 students across all three sites.


Our foundation, infant and primary aged students are based on the original Uffculme School site in Queensbridge Road in very attractive grounds, comprising 7 acres, bordering Highbury Park. All students have a primary need of ASD.


Our secondary aged students (11-19 years) are based in our newly renovated and acquired building, Chamberlain House, which is situated on the corner of Queensbridge Road and Yew Tree Road (400 metres from our primary building). It has been transformed and is specifically tailored to the educational requirements of youngsters whose primary need continues to be ASD.


In the summer of 2016, we opened a third building on Russell Road (another 400 metres from Chamberlain House). This facility caters for students aged 16-19 years who have the most complex ASD needs. Education at our Russell Road site focuses on preparing the students for adult life with an emphasis on daily living skills.
