Head Teacher's Message

I am very proud to be the Head Teacher of High Point Academy. Our school is part of the Forward Education Trust family of schools. The school provides 90 places for children of both sexes in the age range 11 – 16  predominately with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and associated Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD) or Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN).

For your child to be admitted, the school must be named, by a local authority, in the child’s education health and care plan (‘EHCP’).

Pupils at High Point are provided with an inclusive, nurturing, happy and caring learning experience, where they flourish and achieve their full potential.

We understand that structure and routine is important to your child and therefore at High Point we offer high quality teaching and learning to enable your child to develop independent skills and develop resilience when they are faced with change to equip them for the future.

Our focus is on academic and the holistic development of your child and our pastoral form teams and nurturing staff will support in all aspects of their educational pathway. High Point is an inclusive place, with a sense of community, where your child will be treated as an individual whatever their faith or socio-economic group. We believe that every child has a voice and a need to play an active part in fostering community cohesion and harmony.
