The school is registered to admit up to 16 boys aged 11 to 19 years with autism spectrum disorder and associated complex barriers to learning. There are currently 17 pupils on roll, most of whom live in accommodation provided by the company. A small number of pupils are aged over 16 years. All pupils have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. Half of those currently placed at the school are in the care of local authorities.
