About LWS Academy

Welcome to LWS Academy. We are a small specialised academy for boys based on the beautiful south coast.

Our specialist secondary school was established in January 1996 to educate and support boys with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, our new designation is as an Academy for students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. The Academy aims to meet the needs of secondary aged boys who have difficulty managing social interactions; and recognising and regulating their emotions in order to promote positive mental health. As an educational establishment we strive to improve outcomes academically, but at LWS we acknowledge that good mental health, social skills and emotional development is the priority for our students.

What people say about us

I’m delighted to hear that you will be taking part in next years robot challenge. I have to say that I was so impressed with the calm composure that your students showed under pressure, especially during the robot challenge under the time pressure. It was really great to see.

- Erika Smallridge (Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge Manager)

Thank you so much for allowing us to come visit last week. I had the most amazing learning experiences and came away feeling privileged that I’d seen such great work.
