North Hill House School, also referred to as NHH, is an independent specialist school in Frome, Somerset, England for boys and girls with Asperger syndrome and high-functioning autism between the ages of 6 and 18. Owned by the Priory Healthcare Group, North Hill House opened in September 1999. It has been approved by the Department for Children, Schools and Families under Section 347(1) of the Education Act 1996.There are around 100 staff members working in the school. The Executive Principal of both North Hill House and Farleigh College is Sharon Edney.HistoryPrior to its current state, North Hill House's original building had become Farleigh sixth form further education college. The specialist school's current building was originally an open-plan office, owned by another company. In 2002, the building was bought by The Priory Healthcare Group and was changed into a school. The new North Hill house was opened by late 2003. During 2009, the school buildings were enlarged by incorporating a listed building, Stoneleigh House, on the same site.CampusThe School is situated a few hundred metres from the centre of the Frome. The school moved to a new, purpose-built site — only a few yards away — in September 2003. The old building is now Farleigh sixth form further education college, also owned by The Priory Healthcare Group.
