Welcome

I am immensely proud to welcome you to Young People’s Academy, where we ‘triumph with perseverance’ and take PRIDE in everything we do. The staff and students here reflect together to establish what is working well and how to move forwards. We aim to instil a solution focused thinking approach via a varied, practical curriculum that enables students to express themselves whilst developing their many skills. We recognise that we are all very different, but together, with parents and other stakeholders, we can achieve so much more.

Ms Laurie Cornwell - Executive Principal


We aim for our young people to lead a happy and holistically prosperous life by developing the skills for them to move successfully along their life journeys. This includes academic outcomes that reflects the best of their abilities, being able to sustain relationships and employment and maintaining healthy households.


YPA has a good understanding and built a rapport with my son. He has been happy and well cared for to the point where he has met his full potential and thrived. The right balance and structure has provided for my son’s complex needs. Thank you for your continuous support.  Parent
