Students

There are 100 pupils between 11 and 19, both boys and girls, with a range of autism spectrum disorders between severe and high-functioning.

Staff

The head teacher is Simon Eccles. There are over 70 members of staff.

Media attention

The school was featured within a BBC article "School grounds 'improve behaviour'" and students and staff alike were interviewed on the school's scheme of natural improvement within the school grounds.

A Channel 4 documentary Make Me Normal, broadcast on 2 June 2005, was filmed at Spa School. The one-hour documentary followed four students at the school as they revealed what it is like to grow up with a disability that affects around 535,000 people in the UK.
