New SEND school opens in Warwickshire!
Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities are benefitting from a new, multi-million-pound special school in Ash Green called The Warwickshire Academy.
The special school is already open to students but was formally opened at a ceremony attended by local councillors, educational staff and Warwickshire Parent Carer Voice on Tuesday 10 May 2022.
The new school has been re-purposed to include all the features of a modern school and will provide places for 80 children, from the ages of 9 to 19, whose complex needs mean that they cannot be accommodated in mainstream settings. It features flexible classroom space, food technology and science rooms, and a new sports pavilion and gym. The centre was out of use for several years before becoming Warwickshire Academy and needed extensive remedial work to bring it up to a modern standard. Students attending the new school will benefit from bespoke support and individualised timetables to best support their needs.
