Welcome to Beacon Hill Academy. A Specialist College for Sensory & Physical Needs


Welcome to Beacon Hill Academy. We are an “Outstanding” special academy for pupils aged 2-19 who have severe and complex learning difficulties.


All of our pupils have different strengths and needs and every pupil is supported here to follow their own personal learning adventure to help them to succeed. Pupils, parents, families, school staff and other professionals all work together to plan and deliver exciting and challenging learning activities for everyone. We are very keen to share our knowledge and learn from each other and there are many training opportunities happening here.


We hope you enjoy looking at our website, if you want any further information please get in touch or come for a visit.
