Wishmore Cross Academy is a school that requires improvement.  There is a great deal of work to be done to improve our school. Based in Chobham in Surrey, we cater for boys who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). 

The boys are supported in small class sizes, by experienced staff who are able to offer a range of academic, practical and vocational activities.  Our approach aims to support their educational achievements and social, emotional & mental health wellbeing. This approach allows the boys to equip themselves with the skills and practical experience they need for life beyond school and into their chosen careers.
