Woodlands Academy is a special place for young people with a variety of disabilities to work, learn and achieve. Standards and expectations are high for all and linked to achievable targets embedded in a personalised curriculum. It is the aim of the school to provide young people with the tools to achieve the highest possible academic standards which will enable them to make greater, more informed choices in the future. We believe that maintaining the highest standards and expectations of behaviour and attendance will maximise individual attainment.

We provide this under a framework of a caring, supportive and structured environment. 

It is our intention that young people leaving Woodlands Academy will be independent thinkers with enquiring minds who have enjoyed and achieved during their time here and have become responsible citizens and successful learners.

Woodlands Academy curriculum is diverse and enables all young people to gain a set of skills that will allow them to continue achieving beyond school. We offer a range of qualifications from Entry Level to GCSE and Functional Skills. This enables all pupils to leave school with accredited qualifications that support their post 16 choices. Integral to all activities young people at Woodlands Academy engage in are, high expectations, an equality of opportunity and social inclusion.
