Unlocking Potential
Everyone’s Future Counts


 I am delighted to welcome you to The Michael Tippett school and The Michael Tippett College website. I do hope you will find the information here both informative and useful.

You will find details here about the School and College.

Unlocking potential is what we do. We firmly believe that the future of every child placed in our care, matters.

Therefore, we believe that every student is entitled to the very best possible education, delivered in an environment that is both safe and, conducive to learning. At the heart of The Michael Tippett School and College are staff who work tirelessly to ensure we get this right for all our students. 

The Michael Tippett school caters for students aged from 11 up to 19 years of age. The Michael Tippet College is an independent educational establishment catering for adults aged 19-25.We specialise in providing education for students who have profound, severe and complex additional needs, many come with a diagnosed autistic spectrum disorder and all have a Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education Health & Care plan.

 Our modern learning environment is stimulating and motivating, designed to meet the very specific and individual requirements of all our students. The school is situated  in between Loughborough Junction and Herne Hill. We are housed in a beautiful building that, over time, has been adapted and modified to meet the needs of our young people. We benefit from a vibrant local community which provides many unique and enjoyable learning opportunities for our students. The college and respite are housed in a newly refurbished building based in a quieter part of the borough where the borders of Brixton and Balham meet. It is impossible to do full justice to our learning community in a short statement or indeed on a website and I would encourage you to make a personal visit to see us for yourself, at that time I would be delighted to meet you. If you feel you need any more information please don’t hesitate to call and we will answer any of your queries  
Marilyn Ross,  Executive Head.
