Be part of a team that is passionate and committed to making a positive difference to the lives of the pupils and their families; in an innovative academy in Rugby, for children and young people with autism and/or social, emotional and mental health needs.

About Us

In September 2019, MacIntyre Academies Trust opened a new and exciting Academy in a purpose-built state of the art building in Rugby, Warwickshire for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs and/or autism, aged between 7 years and 17 years.

The academy has specialist facilities including a sensory room, therapy room, interactive immersive classroom, soft play room, recording studio and photography suite. We are very proud of our holistic curriculum which enables the pupils to benefit from blended therapy in the classroom. We have a café located at the front of the academy where parents can meet and the pupils can display the items they have made within the academy which will be available to purchase. We are passionate to support our pupils and families from the local community to ensure the best outcomes.

Whilst the new building was being constructed the academy was located in a modern academy building on the outskirts of Nuneaton and opened with 30 pupils in September 2017 rising to 55 pupils in September 2018 and currently 97.

MacIntyre Academies is delighted to have been chosen to set up this new Academy which joined the existing ‘Endeavour Academy’ in Oxford which opened in 2014 and ‘Discovery Academy’ which opened in September 2015 and Venture in 2020.
