Welcome to Frederick Hugh House, a very special school where every child is special.

Frederick Hugh House is a special school like no other.  We started in 2010 as an exciting and unique venture; a school built around celebrating the individual strengths of each pupil; an independent, special school in the Royal Borough of Chelsea, imbued with a combination of inspiration, aspiration and innovation.

We provide an all through, specialist education for children aged of 11-16, catering for those who require individual, integrated educational and therapeutic programmes within a small class and a small school setting.  We aim to ensure that each child’s first crucial steps at Frederick Hugh House are compelling and exciting, to draw them into a world of lifelong learning. We believe our duty is to unlock the strengths in every child so they can achieve their best in all aspects of their lives with us. We are motivated to enable every child to fulfil their potential – emotionally, spiritually, academically, creatively, physically and socially – through a stimulating caring environment where teaching and learning go hand in hand.

Frederick Hugh House is quite simply the most remarkable school with remarkable children and staff.
