What the school says...

Centre Academy East Anglia is a co-educational boarding/day school for pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) including dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. We follow the National Curriculum through GCSEs and offer the American High School Diploma, which is not examination-based, in place of A-Levels. All Diploma Graduates have gained entry to university. In addition, we offer a Life Skills Programme for less-academically orientated students, and we have recently introduced a Pre-Prep Programme for children ages 4-7 of all abilities. The school recently had highly successful Ofsted and CReSTeD inspections. ...Read more

Special Education Needs

Centre Academy East Anglia is a specialist school adressing dyslexia, AD/HD, and other learning challenges in children aged 4 to 19. Pupils receive an intensive programme of support, affording them skills and strategies to help them return to mainstream education or to continue on to further education. We provide a secure, comfortable family environment with excellent boarding facilities and a wide range of activities including the school fire brigade. Classes are small and set by ability not year group. English and maths are taught in groups of no more than seven and all teachers of English and maths have qualifications in teaching pupils with dyslexia. An emphasis is placed on literacy and numeracy skills and all pupils have individual or paired tutorial in English and/or maths. Additional lessons include history, geography, Spanish, science, music, art, drama, DT and PSHE. Each child has a daily tutorial period with their English teacher, following a multi-sensory programme for SpLD children. The children receive support for organisational difficulties - in and out of the classroom. We place great emphasis on raising self-esteem and confidence of pupils. Our rural location provides ample room for many different sports and activities, all of which help our pupils develop physical skills and positive attitudes to health and fitness as well as teaching them co-operation and teamwork.
