Gretton School is part of Newcome Education.

Newcome Education is a small family of day and residential schools which are characterised by their shared expertise and specialism in supporting autistic children and young people and those who have social, emotional and mental health needs.


The schools within Newcome place equal emphasis on academic input and therapeutic support, believing that grades and qualifications should not be the sole measure of success for their students. Instead, learners gain relevant, nationally-recognised qualifications alongside developing the necessary independence and life skills required to enable them to follow pathways to a meaningful career and fulfilling adulthood.


The Chairman of Newcome Education, Mr Aatif Hassan, can be contacted here:
