Here at The Axis Academy we offer a life-line to children who suffer from emotional and mental health difficulties that prevent them from accessing both an education and social mobility, we do this through a true dedication towards a whole school approach to emotional well-being and mental health.

The Axis Academy was launched with the aim to re-connect pupils who had become detached from their education, and in some cases their purpose in life. We strive to re-engage pupils and to give them a vision of both their education and their place in the wider community.

We create a nurturing approach to education where children feel safe and supported and that their needs and obstacles in life are understood and addressed by empathetic, patient members of staff who show compassion and appreciate the needs and requirements of all pupils.

The Axis Academy provides a variety of surroundings to develop the whole child, such as calm rooms and sensory rooms to tranquil learning environments and outdoor spaces. Our commitment is for children to feel safe and secure, with staff that motivate and drive them to come to school every day.

Not only do children have access to trained members of staff who know and understand their needs, The Axis Academy works collaboratively with a variety of multi agencies to ensure that children’s needs are met and anxieties are reduced by providing onsite facilities and a collaborative delivery model with visiting professionals.

The Axis Academy provides an education to children from reception right up to Year 11 and all children are offered a varied, interesting and inspiring curriculum with a focus on vocational and well-being subjects as well as academic subjects.

By focusing on an holistic approach to supporting children with both their education and their emotional well-being, we aim to empower pupils to recognise and manage their own needs with targeted support and guidance.  This will embed a feeling of self worth, helping children to become confident, contributing members of society who go on to become successful adults, leading happy lives.
