Our Academy

Parent/ Carer Comments:

"I want to say how the school have made a positive difference in * life.

You and the school always go above and beyond what is expected of you to help the children and their families. 

I really do appreciate what you do for my son; you always try to make him feel safe and secure.

You're efforts don't go unnoticed. It's clear you are passionate about the boys."

Welcome from the Executive Principal

Welcome to Notton House Academy. We are a Residential Academy with 50 pupils on roll, situated in leafy Wiltshire. We accommodate a wide range of young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND). This includes Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH), Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) and Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). The residential aspect of the Academy enables pupils’ access to an extensive range of extra-curricular experiences, stability, opportunities to build confidence and independence skills in a supportive and nurturing environment.

As an Academy we offer a bespoke, aspirational, residential educational experience to our young people, their families and carers.

We value each individual and tailor our curriculum in order to inspire them to achieve their full potential. We have high expectations for learning and social emotional development. Our aim is to prepare each young person for their next steps, whether this be returning to mainstream education, college or the world of work.

We believe working together with families, parents and carers is at the heart of what we do, building strong attachments and self-confidence. A strong team around a child is the key to them being able to overcome barriers and be successful.

We provide high challenge and support across the Academy. This is to ensure achievement for all; the students, staff, parents, carers, partner agencies and stakeholders.

Working together to build positive futures.

If you would like to know more about our Academy, you are very welcome to come and visit.  

Regards

Mr Darren Ewings,
Executive Principal

" * has not been at the school long, and whilst it has been difficult for him to manage this transition, we feel that his Education is going well and has been one of the most positive outcomes from the school. * always has positive things to say about you and is beginning to enjoy some of his lessons, he particularly enjoyed learning about gases. It was evident in our parent's consultation that you had a good knowledge of his behaviours and shown willing to learn more about him and the behaviour management we use with him; you were open to learning more about the PACE model of care and also having a good home/school partnership and are keen to keep progress going forward. You always appear friendly and approachable."
