The Phoenix Autism Trust is an independent registered charity and incorporated company by guarantee. It has grown out of Phoenix School in Tower Hamlets. Phoenix School is an outstanding education provider for young people with complex autism and related Special Educational Needs. In response to a growing need in the borough and at the request from the local authority, PATH (Phoenix Autism Tower Hamlets) was established in September 2015 to develop a specialist 19-25 further education provision in partnership with New City College. In September 2019, Phoenix College opened its doors as the need for high-quality 16-25 provision continues to grow in Tower Hamlets.
