Anne Hegerty goes back to school

National Autistic Society supporter and star of ITV’s The Chase, Anne Hegerty, visited Clarendon School in Twickenham. The school won a visit from Anne by signing up to take part in World Autism Awareness Week in April, this year.

Greeted by a cheering school assembly, Anne spent the whole morning answering questions from students and touring the school to see the great work the teachers, support staff and students are doing.

John Kipps, Headteacher said, “During World Autism Awareness Week, we used the excellent learning resources provided by the National Autistic Society. Many of our pupils have an autism diagnosis and to have such a positive role model in the school has been amazing.”

Anne was particularly moved by one young student’s film about what it is like to be autistic. Anne told the assembly she could relate to many of the sensory issues the young man described.
