We understand that this is an extremely worrying time because of the amount of uncertainty around the covid-19 virus. In order to support families of keyworkers we are committed to providing for these children whilst their parents are providing an essential and critical service. We will be opening for these pupils ONLY in the Easter holidays.

In these unprecedented, strange and difficult times we wish to say a heartfelt thank you to our incredible staff and families for your on-going resilience and enthusiasm to provide some level of normality to our pupils.

The Government review for current restrictions is due to take place on the 13th April and we will inform ASAP after this date the plans for term 5.

Quest School is an independent specialist school, registered to take pupils from age 5-19 years, across the autistic spectrum. Our last Ofsted inspection in May 2018 rated us ‘Outstanding’ across all areas.

Quest was founded in 2003 by a group of parents and Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) professionals, seeking to create a specialist learning environment, designed around the specific needs of pupils with autism.

The ABA approach is foundational to every aspect of learning within the school and uses a structured teaching approach built on the principles of behaviour science.  Quest is the only ABA school in Kent – there are only a handful of other ABA schools across the UK.

Regardless of ability level, pupils at Quest School have made outstanding progress in all areas of learning. For some, this is achieving everyday tasks independently; for others, it is achieving nationally recognised accreditation at Key Stage 4 and 5.

All pupils at Quest have a Statement of Special Educational Needs/Education, Health and Care Plan and consequently, places are agreed and funded by Local Authorities rather than individual fee-paying places.




“Quest is an exceptional school where our son is thriving. He has never been happier and neither have we.”
