Abbots Lea School

About This School

Abbot's Lea is a specialist school that provides the highest quality of education for students aged 3-19 living with Autism and a range of associated communication, interaction, social, sensory and learning differences. Alongside the academic curriculum, there is a strong focus on life skills and employability, preparing students for the wider world after leaving our school. These works have a strong focus on personal taste and the development of individual styles, rather than working from a particular theme or reference point - art is just one way in which our students love expressing their own interests!

School Competition Entries

Our panel of art experts have selected their top three artworks from each school and public voting is now open until 26th April 2019. The winners will be announced here on Monday 29th April. The first-placed entry from each school will be included in an exhibition at Liverpool School of Art and Design starting on the 19th June.
