Students

At Unified Academy (formerly Chart Wood School) we want all of our pupils to feel a part of both the school and the wider community. We want you to access all the opportunities that are available to you and to work hard to achieve your aims and ambitions.

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!
