The Integrated Learning Space (ILS) is a unique Specialist School in Islington designed to meet the educational, social and emotional needs of young people with autism, severe learning difficulties and challenging behaviours. Our pupils are girls and boys aged from 7 to 19.
The staffing structure at the ILS is comprehensive, with a ratio of approximately one teacher per five pupils and 1:1 support for all pupils delivered by leads and special needs professionals. To maximise the benefits of integrating our work, Speech and language therapists and Occupational therapists work in tandem with teachers and support staff to deliver a tailored curriculum for each and every student who attends.
The ILS is committed to a philosophy of multi-agency and integrated working. We believe that by utilising the specialist skills of the team around each young person we can achieve the very best potential outcomes of each student at the school. To deliver this we draw on a range of proven educational and therapeutic programmes to teach and enrich the lives of the pupils and their families. We work closely with our in-house clinical psychologist to deliver comprehensive parental support and staff wellbeing interventions and invest in researching and sharing our practices wherever possible.
The Bridge ILS is part of a Multi-Academy Trust, The Bridge London Trust, which also incorporates The Bridge School (Primary and Secondary) and The Bridge Satellite Provision.
