Team one arrived at Kinabatagan yesterday for their KOPEL project and have spent today collecting and planting seeds to help grow more trees in areas of the jungle affected by deforestation. It's been a hot but productive day! 🌲🌿 https://t.co/8gRz1aci3N

The NAS Cullum Centre

Hinchley Wood NAS Cullum Centre welcomed its first intake of four, Year 7 students in September 2016.  

The National Autistic Society, together with generous financial backing from the Cullum Family Trust, has provided a model for an innovative resource for young autistic people to be able to thrive in our mainstream curriculum.

NAS Cullum Centre students spend the majority of their time in the main school, but the centre provides specialist support from trained staff, such as learning in small groups and therapy sessions, as well as a calm setting to which they can retreat. NAS Cullum students have a primary diagnosis of autism on their statement/EHCP, will be high functioning and have the academic potential to achieve at least five good GCSEs (currently A*-C grades).

Each year Surrey SEN offers places to four students with an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) Statement with a primary diagnosis of autism.  Places in the NAS Cullum Centre are allocated by Surrey LA after consideration by a multi-professional team at Surrey's COIN Panel.  Places in the NAS Cullum Centre at Hinchley Wood are limited and will only be considered through SEN case workers or educational psychologists in conjunction with families.

Please note: Hinchley Wood School is not the Admissions Authority for places in the NAS Cullum Centre.  For all details, information and advice on the admissions process plese visit the Surrey County Council website: www.surreycc.gov.uk/send and www.surreycc.gov.uk/admissions

If you are considering the Hinchley Wood NAS Cullum Centre for your child and you would like more information before you speak to Surrey please feel free to contact Mrs K Cullen (Assistant Head teacher) for more information.
