Hornbeam Academy comprises of two different campuses. Brookfield House campus is the lower school and William Morris campus is the upper school. A small number of older pupils remain at Brookfield if it is felt that this better meets their needs.
We admit pupils from ages 2 to 19 years old with a range of special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). We work closely with parents, carers and other professionals to make our students’ time at Hornbeam as enjoyable, worthwhile and stimulating as possible. We provide exciting learning opportunities for everyone, with a strong emphasis on the skills that children and young people will need for life when they leave us as adults. Our aim is to develop the skills and knowledge of all our young people so that they can become independent and confident adults of the future.
Almost all of our children and young people have Statements of Special Educational Need or the new Education Health and Care Plans. A few children join us on assessment places to decide what type of school can best meet their needs.
All of our staff are dedicated and well trained and understand that parents and carers know their children best of all.
I hope you enjoy looking around our website. If you are interested in a place for your child you are very welcome to visit, but please be aware that you need to contact your local SEN team to apply.
