At Venturers’ Academy we ensure Autistic students are challenged to use a range of social skills in different contexts, for example working as a team through the Forest School experience, visiting places with historical significance and showing a deep respect, tolerance and understanding of the culture and beliefs of others.

The literacy and numeracy curriculum are delivered in the mornings which is further supported by subject learning assessed through the SEND toolkit on Classroom Monitor, White Rose Mathematics, Read Write Inc and the Curiosity Curriculum.

In January 2022 we were awarded Advanced Accreditation by the National Autistic Society.

Therapeutic interventions compliment targeted academic interventions and a highly personalised approach to learning. We have embedded a well-managed differentiated (three levels of service) integrated working approach to therapy provision directed at maximising preparation for learning and learning activity. Mental Health and Wellbeing of all stakeholders is central to our mission.

Currently there are 3 sites – Venturers’ Academy, Withywood Road, Venturers’ Academy Hareclive Road and Venturers’ Academy, St. Anne’s Park.
