Peterhouse School

About This School

As a specialist school for pupils with Autism we use The Arts as a motivator to enable our pupils to increase their confidence and strive for independence as well as being a tool to aid in the development of communication and self-expression. We have high expectations and focus on a 'can do' approach which highlights what pupils can do rather than what they find difficult. Not only do we celebrate the finished product but more importantly the process and learning which has been involved to reach the end result which can develop self-occupancy skills and interests for adult life.

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.
