Louise Hindmarch   Deputy HeadteacherOn behalf of everyone connected with Harry Watts Academy, I would like to welcome you to our website. I very much hope that it will give you a feel for our wonderful school along with some of the enriching opportunities on offer. 

Harry Watts Academy is a specialist multi site Academy for pupils aged 5 to 16 years. All pupils at Harry Watts, have a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and complex learning difficulties. Due to their special educational needs, all pupils have a respective Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Essential to each pupils growth is our ASC specific environment and our incredibly dedicated multi disciplinary staff team, who are highly skilled and trained in ASC specific strategies and delivery.

At Harry Watts Academy we aim to support all of our pupils to achieve and develop in all aspects of their life through our exciting and challenging whole school curriculum. We celebrate that every one of our pupils is an individual, with their own unique strengths and challenges. With this in mind, our pathway approach has been carefully developed to ensure all pupils receive a high quality, challenging curriculum which meets all their needs.

Our school ethos is to promote “Support and Success Together” and we firmly believe that knowing each pupil as an individual is a vital element in supporting their growth and development, within a carefully personalised programme of learning.  We could not do this without the ongoing excellent support and joint working with families, professionals and all stakeholders associated with Harry Watts Academy. Working closely with our Parents and Carers is something we are passionate about, in order to support the wider family.  

Our school is a supportive community where everyone feels safe and secure, valued and respected and where we have a shared commitment to providing the very best learning opportunities possible. We have the highest expectations and aspirations for all of our learners and their families and continually seek to develop and grow, in order to ensure that their goals, dreams and potential are realised.

I am immensely proud to be the Headteacher of Harry Watts Academy and I hope you will be able to see why whilst visiting our website.
