The Ambitious about Autism Schools Trust (previously known as the Autism Schools Trust) is a multi-academy trust (MAT) that runs and supports the development of new special schools to enable children and young people with autism to learn, thrive and achieve.
The Rise School was set-up by the Ambitious about Autism School’s Trust in 2014 as a special school dedicated to educating pupils with autism aged 4-18. It was designed to be inspirational and transformational, with a broad and challenging curriculum delivered in an environment of high expectations and a close individual focus.
The Ambitious about Autism Schools Trust is currently working with local authorities and local groups who share our commitment to developing high-quality, evidence-based schools for children with autism. Through new partnerships we will support more children and young people with autism and grow the Trust.
