Life-transforming education and care for young people with complex social and learning difficulties.

Welcome to the ‘The Springfields Academy’ and the life-transforming education and residential care we provide for young people with complex social and learning difficulties. Springfields is an outstanding learning community that engages pupils and develops positive attitudes to learning. Staff are confident and skilled in building positive relationships that help to break down barriers, build self-esteem and challenge disaffection.

For vulnerable young people it is often a long road to success. Through the provision of a structured, learning environment, we build that success through challenge, personalisation and innovation. Our aim, for all our pupils, is for a full and fulfilling independent life in which they are equipped to make positive contributions to their community. We help our pupils develop the skills that enable them to be independent and to manage their own behaviour. As a result, Springfields’ pupils learn to reflect and develop as citizens.

All Springfields Academy staff are committed to enabling all our pupils to overcome their challenges and achieve their potential through both their social development and their academic and vocational learning. Staff have very clear expectations about the standards they expect and encourage all pupils to aspire.

Our website provides only a glimpse into the range of our provision, ethos, activities and the fun that our pupils and staff enjoy as they learn. Please contact the academy if you would like to know more.
