About Us

Young People’s Academy is a secondary special school for students with social, emotional and mental health needs.

We recognise that the majority of our students thrive via a varied curriculum that is practical based and introduces students to and enhances their experiences via an enrichment programme.

We understand that many of our students arrive at Young People’s Academy having had very difficult experiences of school in the past. With the skill and dedication of our staff, we aim to reconnect them with education so they can make progress to becoming successful adults via a reflective approach. Reflection and restorative practice, as opposed to detentions and exclusions, is used to help students understand what is currently happening, what they are trying and using well, and how they can move forward.

Young People’s Academy is determined that students will leave with academic outcomes that reflects the best of their abilities, able to sustain relationships and employment and maintain 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
