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.
