Why work for us
Preparing young people for full and enriched lives

The Warwickshire Academy is a school for students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs and is situated in Warwickshire with close links to Coventry, the M6 and the surrounding areas of Ash Green, Bedworth and Nuneaton.

The school was redeveloped in 2022 and officially opened on the 7th March 2022 to our first cohort of year 5, 6 and 7 students.  The school benefits from exemplary teaching spaces, designed to meet the needs of our learners as well as specialist rooms for Food Technology, Art, Science and D&T.

The Warwickshire Academy is more than a school, it is a community; bringing together children, their families and carers and dedicated staff to offer life-changing opportunities for young people that have social, emotional, and mental health needs. These outstanding children deserve the very best and we are unwavering in our determination to offer them this.

We are always aspirational about pupils’ continual success, progress, and achievement. We encourage all pupils to think big and accept no restriction on what is possible for them. Students benefit from highly individualised timetables which are designed to help them both achieve and attain and to offer them the best opportunities in further education and/or employment in the future.
