What the school offers its staff

Restormel Academy is based in St. Austell in Mid-Cornwall; a region that includes some of the most socially and economically deprived areas within Cornwall.

The Academy provides a warm, caring and individualised learning experience for pupils whose behaviour has hindered their progress in mainstream school. We strive to re-engage our pupils with learning, by maintaining a calm working atmosphere, and supporting positive change in the way our pupils choose to behave.

We provide places for those young people who have been permanently excluded from school, or who are on intervention programmes because of their behaviour.
