Medeshamstede Academy


Welcome to Medeshamstede Academy.

We aim to educate our pupils in a positive, caring and secure environment which gives them access to a mainstream school experience wherever appropriate.  We value and celebrate achievement at an individual level and each pupil will follow an educational programme that is designed to his/her needs.

We will develop a strong partnership with parents and we recognise that a team effort is needed to ensure pupils can make the best progress possible.

The vision of this Academy is to ensure that pupils with Autism/Asperger’s Syndrome have enhanced educational opportunities in terms of:

  •  specialist teaching and learning approaches in the special school
  •  access to wider curriculum, examination preparation, learning facilities
  • well planned vocational opportunities, and post-16 pathways.

The school will become a ‘Centre of Excellence’ for professionals working with pupils on the Autistic Spectrum.
