The academy believes that all students, whatever their needs, should receive the best possible education and thereby develop their academic and social potential to the full.


  1. For all students to be able to read, write and comprehend to a level that will allow them to cope with everyday life both inside and outside the school environment.
  2. For all students to have a working knowledge of basic mathematical principles which would allow them to transfer this knowledge to real life situations
  3. To foster in students a sense of self worth which will enable them to cope with a variety of social situations
  4. To provide students with a secure learning environment in which they can develop positive patterns of learning, behaviour, socialisation and confidence
