Welcome to Corley Centre
We are thrilled to announce that Corley Centre has been awarded with an Artsmark Gold Award.
“The panel commend the impact your Artsmark journey has had in increasing the proportions of pupils choosing the arts at GCSE level, and the positive impact it has had on improving your pupils’ self-esteem and confidence. Pupils have evidently been engaged in, and benefited from, the broad range of exciting, creative opportunities that you provide at the Corley Centre. The panel is also impressed that the school fosters pupils’ autonomy in their creative work through offering the Arts Award scheme and the implementation of a panel of Arts Ambassadors.”

Our Learning Environment
Addressing Our Students’ Autism Needs
Our students present very differently, both from neurotypical individuals and from each other. They are fully representative of the autism spectrum.
Given the diversity within the autism spectrum and between individuals, there is no single educational intervention that is useful for all students, and no single intervention that would on its own be sufficient to meet all the needs of a particular student on the autism spectrum. Read More >>
Students New To Corley Centre
All new students will be invited with their parents for an individual tour of the school at which time they will be able to meet some staff and older students and ask any questions they may have.
