Welcome to Blackfriars Academy, a very special place to be educated where every student is valued as an individual. As a staff we work in partnership with parents and carers, taking our responsibility very seriously to provide a personalised education that breaks down barriers to learning and equipping students for the next stage in their lives.

Our learning community comprises approx. 120 students aged between 11-19 and over 90 staff, all working towards the goal of supporting students with profound and complex, or moderate or severe learning needs and profound and complex needs to reach their potential, be it GCSE passes and BTEC accreditation, independent travel on public transport, the vocabulary to make simple choices or improved communication skills. We are special because we provide an outstanding educational experience for a vast range of needs in a supportive and caring atmosphere where students blossom in our inclusive environment.
