Gecko Community offers innovative teaching and therapeutic projects to support neurodivergent students who struggle with education. Our provision combines the alternative education needed by these students with an appreciation of the wellbeing essential to their social integration and personal confidence.

They support students aged between 5 – 25 who:

  • Are autistic
  • Are experiencing anxiety or mental ill health
  • Are at risk from exclusion or have self-excluded from mainstream education
  • Have ADHD
  • Have experienced bullying and trauma

Students can be with Gecko because they’re out of school, while they wait for a placement or as part of their EOTAS package. We support neurodivergent young people for as long as they need.

All of our sessions are 1:1 and online in various ways.

In September, Gecko Community is opening a hub. This will be an alternate provision for 6 – 8 students, aged 8 / 9 / 10. We will run for 3 days a week and offer learning, socialising and crafts. To find out more about the hub please get in contact via email/phone.
