Our Primary School
Welcome to Eagle House School (Mitcham)
We are an independent co-educational day school providing specialised education for up to 65 pupils aged 4 to 11 years with an autism spectrum disorder, autism, Asperger syndrome and associated social and communication difficulties.
Eagle House School (Mitcham) was established in 2004 and occupies the Grade 1 listed building of Eagle House – a house of great historic interest dating back to the time of Sir Walter Raleigh. Our Early Years Department occupies Eagle Court which is a modern building lying adjacent to Eagle House.
At Eagle House School (Mitcham) we aim to be much more than just a school. Our specialist teaching offers an unique approach to working with learners with autism and Asperger syndrome. We believe we can develop the global needs of our children, not just their education.
We value the contribution each child and young person brings to the life of our school
The aim of our special needs education is to unlock the full potential of each learner by creating a school day that is motivating, rewarding and purposeful. We recognise that successful learning is achieved through an irresistible combination of fun and positive experiences.
Our school is a community in which everyone works happily and purposefully together. It is our vision that by the end of their time at Eagle House School, all of our learners will have a sense of achievement, raised self-esteem and will leave us with a positive attitude to future life and learning.
Our Vision Statement
