Quest is an independent specialist school for pupils with autism. The school is registered to take pupils from age 5-19 years, across the autistic spectrum.

Quest is an ABA (Applied Behavioural Analysis) school, which means that the ABA approach is foundational to every aspect of teaching and learning within the school. It is the only school of its kind in Kent, and one of only a handful of ABA schools across the UK.

The ABA approach focuses on individually designed learning programmes for each pupil, with a significant amount of ‘one to one’ teaching for each pupil throughout the school day. Our last Ofsted inspection in June 2012 rated us as Outstanding.

At Quest, we have specialist skills which we know from experience can be used to radically improve outcomes for pupils with autism whose needs are often not well-served within typical state provision. From often very low starting points, our pupils making outstanding progress, including achieving nationally recognised accreditation at KS4 and KS5 (Sixth Form).

The school is located in Paddock Wood, Kent, and serves a wide area of local authorities in the South East including: Kent, Medway and the south London boroughs.
