A leading educator has called the Centre Academy schools (London and East Anglia) “the most successful special needs schools in the UK and, indeed, the most unique.” Here’s why:
We accept a broad range of ages, from 8-19; this eliminates the anxiety, common to Special Needs children, of having to move from one school to another. We have recently introduced a Pre-Prep programme (at the East Anglia School) for pupils ages, from 4-7.
We address an equally broad range of learning challenges on a case-by-case basis, including Dyslexia, AD/HD, ASD, Speech and Language needs, to name a few.
We cap our enrolment to ensure very small classes: at CA London, 50 students; at CA East Anglia, a total of 60.
We follow the National Curriculum through GCSE or the Foundation Learning and other programmes for more vocationally orientated students.
We are the only school in the UK, including mainstream schools, also to offer the American High School Diploma; the Diploma is not examination-based but instead involves a system of continual assessment, thus reducing pressure and anxiety. All UK Universities recognise the Diploma.
