Welcome To 3 Dimensions

3 Dimensions specialise in providing a safe, secure learning environment for young people and adults with special  needs and challenging behaviour.

We provide residential care and schooling with a wide range of services available including residential placements, educational day placements, or placements that require both.


We have three amazing residential homes which consist of ChardleighWoodview,  and Ashcroft. All our homes are taylored to the needs of our service users.


3 Dimensions School is an approved, independent special school for 16 pupils aged 7 to 25 and providing Key Stage 2 up to Secondary and post 16 education for children and adults with learning disabilities, vulnerability in the community and communication difficulties including ASD.


The School is also accredited by the National Autistic Society for the quality of its provision. NAS Accreditation is a highly regarded quality standard and recognises the outstanding work the school undertakes in delivering an educational curriculum to pupils with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and other related communication difficulties.

Following a recent re-inspection in February 2016, 3 Dimensions School has been re-accredited for a further three years until April 2019.

Services for Adults

We support transitions for those about to enter into adult services, including arranging visits to the new centre and providing assistance to the new team where necessary.


We have developed additional care and education services including provision for supporting adults on the autistic spectrum.


As our company has grown, we have ensured that any growth in services has not been at the expense of the quality of our provisions, with each additional development enhancing our services. Quality is paramount to us!


Our 18 + Project provides spaces for  young people who continue to need our support into their young adult life.


This allows us to transfer the Positive Behaviour Management strategies that have proven successful for our Young People into an 18+ support package.
