Heron Academy (formerly The Michael Tippett School) has a current roll of 72 students, aged 11-19.

Students have a range of complex needs; SLD, PMLD, ASD and severe challenging behaviour. The majority of our students have severely impaired communication needs and a wide range of medical needs.

We aim to create a calm and nurturing atmosphere supporting our student’s personal growth and education.

As a school, we pride ourselves on:

  • specialist staff who are highly committed to helping young people reach their potential
  • the opportunity for students to experience a wide variety of curriculum subjects and enrichment programmes
  • s solid and effective partnership with parents to provide the necessary support for every student as we believe the education of our young people is a shared responsibility

Our modern learning environment is stimulating and motivating, designed to meet the very specific and individual requirements of all our students.

We are housed in a beautiful building that, over time, has been adapted and modified to meet the needs of our young people. We benefit from a vibrant local community which provides many unique and enjoyable learning opportunities for our students.
