Meath School is a day and residential special school for primary aged children with speech, language and communication disorders and high functioning autism (formerly known as Asperger’s syndrome).


As of September 2023 our school roll is:

68 Pupils

21 Residential Pupils across the week

All pupils are aged from 4 to 11 and we are currently able to accommodate 15 residential boarders per night for up to four night assuming there is a place available in a suitable group. Children stay between one and four nights, depending on individual needs.

We aim to provide a caring and empathetic environment to meet the needs of all our pupils and their families.
