Welcome

Welcome to the Young People’s Academy website. I am thrilled to be working with everyone in our community, and look forward to seeing us all triumph with perseverance during this exciting chapter of the academy.

Our varied curriculum and celebration of individuality allows us to take PRIDE in all that we do.

We hope that you find our website useful, but understand that this cannot replace a visit. I encourage you to visit us to experience our culture; please contact us to make an appointment, and we will endeavour to support this around the current government guidelines.

Kayser Izard - Principal


We aim for our young people to lead a happy and holistically prosperous life by developing the skills for them to move successfully along their life journeys. This includes academic outcomes that reflect the best of their abilities, being able to sustain relationships and employment and maintaining healthy households.


YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
