Oak Lodge School, Barnet: The Windmill School

The Windmill School

18th May 2022

The Secretary of State for Education has approved plans to open The Windmill School at a location in the Barnet area. This will be a special free school for learners aged 5 to 18 years with a diagnosed autistic spectrum condition and an Education, Health & Care Plan. When full, it will offer places for 90 children and young people whose autism is the major barrier to their learning and who would find the busy environments of either mainstream or generic special schools too challenging.

Barnet Council's Strategic Planning Committee unanimously approved our application to convert 50, Moxon Street, High Barnet, EN5 5TS at their meeting on 23rd March 2022. As of 18th May, the period for judicial review applications has now expired and our approval, subject to conditions is confirmed. Dependant on the speed of construction progress and final DfE approvals, we expect The Windmill School to open in September 2023.
