Welcome

Welcome to Unified Academy. We are a special school for boys aged 9 to 16 years who have social, emotional and mental health needs. All of our students have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

Students are at the heart of everything we do. We want our students to become well-rounded, confident adults with high aspirations for their future.

We deliver a highly personalised approach to education with an emphasis on meeting the different needs, abilities and interests of our students in order to secure the best possible outcomes for them.

Class sizes are small with no more than 10 students in each teaching group. Lessons are tailored, carefully planned and as a result, learning is more purposeful and engaging. As well as teaching staff, classroom assistants provide additional support for students helping to build their confidence and self-esteem whilst supporting their academic, social and developmental needs.

Students have access to a range of therapies including; Trusted Adults, Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSAs) and Canine Assisted Learning (CAL). Additionally, Unified Academy has full time Home School Link Workers (HSLW) to support families with the management of behaviour, improving their child’s attendance at school and facilitating access to other Health and Social Care services.

Students are encouraged and nurtured to get the most out of their school experience and their individual contributions are valued and celebrated.

If you are considering a place at Unified Academy for your son, please contact us at info@unifiedacademy.org or 01737 215 488.

Supporting each other, Achieving together


My son joined Unified Academy in September 2020 and it is the best educational setting for him.  As a parent, I was apprehensive about my son attending a new place, but the experience for him has been fantastic. Having had a tough time in previous schools, his attitude to attending school has been difficult. Unified Academy has changed his attitude towards school and that is thanks to the positivity of all the staff.  My son finally feels accepted and that is a great weight off my shoulders!
