Mission Statement


Peterhouse School aims to provide a safe, secure and positive learning environment, one in which all young people with an autism spectrum condition/asperger's syndrome are understood and valued and provided with person centred learning opportunities, equipping them with the skills for life.

The School was established in 1974 following an extensive fund-raising campaign led by the late Pat Minshull to provide education and care for her son, Peter.  It offers day, weekly boarding, termly boarding, 52 week boarding and short break care to pupils aged from 5 to 19 years and is administered by the charity, Autism Initiatives, formerly based in Chesterfield Road, Crosby and recently moved to Bridle Road in Bootle.

Autism Initiatives Vision Statement
Our expectation is that people with autism can learn and develop and we support this process every single day.  We will create unique services for people to enable them to have ownership of their own lives and future.
