Welcome to
Snowfields Academy

leading the way in offering support for young people’s wellbeing

As Principal, I would like to thank you for your interest in Snowfields Academy. Having trained for and taught young people with Learning Difficulties and ASD for many years, I am proud and honoured to lead an exceptional specialist ASD provision.

Snowfields Academy offers the very best personalised approaches within an inspiring learning environment. Our students are taught and supported by exceptional staff who offer care, challenge and support. Every student has a personalised transition from their starting point into our Academy and we work closely with other providers to streamline this process and smooth out any challenges along the way. Snowfields Academy brings our values to life:  Be Kind, Work Hard, Communicate, Stay Safe and Be Happy. These values permeate our building, our curriculum, our aims and our ethos and we work hard every day to ensure we bring our motto, Where Nurture Meets Aspiration, to life, and help our students to thrive.

Our Mission

A highly-supportive pastoral structure is central to the academy, placing the needs of each student first, and a commitment to instilling British values and delivering a strong Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) education is evident within the curriculum.

Staff at Snowfields Academy are trained to support those with both mental health difficulties and other behavioural needs, and all students and their families have access to the support they need, including contact with trained Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA). An emphasis is placed on preparing learners for their lives after school and supporting them in identifying and achieving their aspirations, and as a result students have the option of making choices from a blended curriculum which combines both vocational and academic subjects. Regardless of their pathway choice, every student experience is tailored to suit the needs and ambitions of each individual learner.

Every student at Snowfields Academy is an individual with a wide range of qualities, strengths and areas of need. We provide an environment which nurtures every student but also has the highest expectations for their academic and personal outcomes. Through our personalised approach to delivering the curriculum we ensure every student knows they are valued and cared for and that we are ambitious for their success. A highly skilled and empathetic multi-disciplinary team work closely with students and families to reduce barriers to learning and develop exceptional, confident and happy young people who are fully prepared for their next steps.
