SGS Pegasus School – a purpose-built learning environment for children with autism

SGC Pegasus School is a new school located in Patchway, and is intended to create a calm, progressive learning environment for children with a primary diagnosis of autism.

Its classrooms have been designed to support young people to learn and thrive without distractions. While the building is light and airy with plenty of sunlight, there are less bright colours on the walls; and while students and teachers alike are proud of the work they are doing, a minimum is put on display, according to a specific colour scheme, to reduce diversion from lessons.

Staff and students moved into the new building in November last year. SGS Pegasus will eventually be an all-through school for students aged 4-18, and is currently teaching 56 pupils in Years 2-8.

Dominic Broad, head teacher at SGS Pegasus, said: “This is a very exciting opportunity for us to create a truly balanced and individualised curriculum for children. Our equal focus on developing children academically, socially, emotionally and physically allows us to work towards our students achieving to the best of their ability in a high stakes, low threat environment.”
