About Foxwood Academy
Special Needs School
Foxwood Academy is a friendly 3-19 special Academy in Nottinghamshire, we were graded good by Ofsted in October 2017 and are looking to build a strong and effective team to take us into 2022 and beyond. We are currently a Single Academy Trust.
Our students needs are varied but in general we cater for children and young people with moderate and severe learning difficulties. Many of our children and young people have a diagnosis of Autism and a proportion have additional speech and language needs. Many of our children have spent time in mainstream settings but move to Foxwood for a more specialised environment and curriculum.
Progression for students through the Academy is via different pathways to meet the diverse needs of the children. The Preparing for Adulthood (PfA) framework is used as a part of our curriculum and includes outstanding provision in preparing young people for employment and their futures. We offer accreditation to our 14-19 year old young people up to GCSE level.
The Academy has established a broad and balanced curriculum built on values and principles that ensure all students are well prepared for life in modern Britain.
Arranging a visit to Foxwood Academy
Visits to the Academy are warmly welcomed and recommended. Please contact the Academy office, who will be happy to arrange a mutually convenient time for a visit.
Candidates will be shortlisted and invited to a virtual meeting with a small group of the Academy leadership team. Formal interviews will then follow.
Formal Interviews planned for W/C 26th April
