Caradon Academy provides education for mainstream pupils who have been permanently excluded or are at risk of permanent exclusion or on an intervention basis. Based in Liskeard, South East Cornwall; a region that includes some of the most socially and economically deprived rural areas within the county of Cornwall. The academy is a mainstream provision for pupils designated as disengaged. It is most effective when used as an early intervention strategy to re-engage pupils with their learning.

Caradon Academy can take up to 40 pupils and is a mixed sex academy for pupils who have been permanently excluded or are on intervention programmes between Key Stage 1 – Key Stage 4.

We work closely with all of the secondary and primary schools within our partnership to ensure the needs of those most vulnerable pupils are met. Our curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of our pupils and staff work extremely hard to ensure pupils are given every opportunity to succeed and aspire. We work closely with a diverse range of outside agencies both statutory and voluntary so that our young people can access the support and guidance they need.
