About Us

In September 2019, MacIntyre Academies Trust opened a new and exciting Academy in a purpose built state of the art building in Rugby, Warwickshire for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs and/or autism , aged between 7 years and 19 years. The new school has specialist facilities including a sensory room, therapy room, interactive immersive classroom, soft play room, recording studio and photography suite. We are very proud of our holistic curriculum which enables the pupils to benefit from blended therapy in the classroom. We have a café locat-ed at the front of the school where parents can meet and the pupils can display the items they have made within the school which will be available to purchase. We are passionate to support our pupils and families from the local commu-nity to ensure the best outcomes.

Whilst the new building was being constructed the academy was located in a temporary modern school building on the outskirts of Nuneaton and opened with 30 pupils in September 2017 rising to 55 pupils in September 2018.
