We would like to welcome you to the City of Peterborough Academy Special School.
We aim to educate our pupils in a positive, caring and secure environment which gives them access to a mainstream school experience wherever appropriate. We value and celebrate achievement at an individual level and each pupil will follow an educational programme that is designed to his/her needs.
We will develop a strong partnership with parents and we recognise that a team effort is needed to ensure pupils can make the best progress possible.
The vision of this new Special School is to ensure that pupils with high functioning Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome have enhanced educational opportunities in terms of:
- specialist teaching and learning approaches in the special school
- access to wider curriculum, examination preparation, learning facilities,
- access to appropriate classes in the mainstream setting at KS3 and KS4.
Pupils will also benefit from well planned vocational opportunities, and post-16 pathways.
The school will become a ‘Centre of Excellence’ for professionals working with pupils on the Autistic Spectrum.
