Principal

Welcome to the website of The Peak Academy.

The Peak Academy is a special secondary school catering for approximately 50 children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. All children that attend the Peak Academy have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education and Health Care Plan and some may have been permanently excluded from mainstream schools.

The Peak Academy offers specialised learning opportunities with a range of resources to support education. Pupils are expected to make academic progress in line with their mainstream peers: our core focus at The Peak Academy is that pupils learn the necessary skills to de-escalate and manage their behaviours with a view to re-engaging with academic activities as quickly as possible. We work hard to achieve the best of provision for our pupils and transition them smoothly on to the next stage of their learning.

All classes are fully inclusive and are determined by the pupils individual level of need and their circumstances rather than purely age related or key stage groupings. Our vision is to build a community of purpose at the academy, local community and collaborative work within the Gloucestershire County.
