Great Oaks Small School is a small independent (secondary) school, situated in a semi-rural site, in attractive converted farm buildings, on the outskirts of Minster in Kent.  Established in 2001, the school moved to its present location in August 2006.  

We provide a unique education for students with a wide range of abilities who have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Social Communication Disorder (SCD), either with or without high anxieties.

We are a co-education community and aim to provide a holistic education which ensures our students leave as well-rounded intellectual, moral, social, aesthetic and confident young people. We support our students in gaining qualifications that are appropriate to their individual needs and aspirations.

Our flourishing community at Great Oaks Small School welcomes you!
