Aspris Children’s Services is one of the leading providers of specialist education and residential care services in the UK.
Through our Aspris Education and Aspris Care divisions, our specialist schools, colleges, children’s homes and fostering agency provide the highest standards of education and care to individuals with a range of needs. Whether we are working with young people with autism, learning difficulties, social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties or supporting some of society’s most vulnerable children, we are committed to helping each child to fulfil their goals and achieve their aspirations.
Aspris Children’s Services is part of the Aspris Group, which also operates class-leading mental health and specialist education services in the Middle East. This includes the acclaimed Al Karamah School and Training Institute, the first facilities of their kind for children and young people with autism in the UAE.
Our values and behaviours
At Aspris, we are proud of our values and behaviours which were developed by our colleagues, children and young people. They shape our culture and underpin why our organisation is such a unique and exciting place to be, alongside influencing the positive work we do and how we do it.
As an organisation, we’re restless to deliver the Aspris difference for every child and young person we support. We continuously innovate to provide the best possible outcomes and we celebrate and recognise not only young people’s achievements, but each other’s. We do the right thing for children and young people, which sometimes may not be the easiest thing.

Supporting each child to achieve their unique potential
We believe that every young person deserves the care, support and education that equips them for a brighter future, and we support each child to achieve their unique potential.
Aspris Education provides a network of specialist schools and colleges, with an unwavering focus on achieving the best outcomes. With our educational expertise and first-class environments, children and young people grow, develop and progress. They achieve academically while building the social, emotional and independence skills they can draw on for life.
Our Aspris Care children’s homes provide warm, welcoming and nurturing environments for vulnerable young people. They offer stability and care, empowering each child to overcome their barriers and succeed. Our homes support young people to engage with their education and lay the foundations for successful transitions to the next stage of their life.
Rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, Aspris Fostering Services supports a growing network of dedicated foster carers, ensuring that the children in our care grow up in safe, supportive and loving families. Our fostering agency helps young people to unlock their potential and face their adult lives with confidence and a sense of self-worth.
Care and support tailored to each individual
Every child is unique, so we carefully tailor our care and support to their specific needs, interests, skillsets and aspirations. We see the potential in each young person that we support and we place their needs at the core of every decision we take.
We know the journey to success is often not a straight line. Wherever a child’s abilities lie, we dedicate ourselves to helping them enhance their future prospects. We are patient, committed and work in partnership with each young person that we support.
We have extensive experience of working with children and young people with a range of needs, including autism, social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs and learning difficulties.
We have an in-depth understanding of these challenges and the ways in which they can affect a young person, both academically and socially. This awareness shapes everything that we do, from the subjects offered in our schools and colleges, to the design and layout of our buildings.
Welcoming international students
Young people from across the world are welcomed into our specialist schools and colleges every year. These settings provide the safe and nurturing environments that children need to settle in and quickly feel at home.
Located in some of the most beautiful areas in the UK, our education services offer a first-class British education, supporting young people to achieve a range of UK qualifications and accreditations.
