More about Robin
“Hello and Welcome to Remarkable, I’m Robin Bush, the CEO.
I came to Remarkable (formerly known as Wargrave House Ltd) in September 2019 and have spent the first couple of years supporting the organisation to rebuild its infrastructure and build some solid foundations for future growth and development. My 30 year career started as a support worker at a residential special school in Devon.
From then I moved around a bit, developing the Isle of Man’s first autism services, establishing supported living accommodation across the North West and more recently leading a regional Autism Charity employing over 1000 staff.
I have been privileged to lead some exciting regional, national and international projects designed to improve the lived experiences of people on the autism spectrum.
These have included advising the Government on the autism bill, speaking at Parliament to change hate crime legislation, developing Liverpool as an autism friendly city and establishing an international research project using bio-metric technology.
Remarkable Autism Ltd, through Wargrave House School and Ascent College, has a long history of supporting people to reach their potential.
Together we will be able to continue this good work, ensuring that everyone with autism is supported to understand and thrive in their world and that the world is able to understand autism.”

I have never looked back, the young people who attend Ascent College, and their families/carers, inspire me every day, I feel privileged to work within the student and staff team at Ascent College with our shared vision for all our young adults to live happy fulfilled lives.
