Founded in 2016, South Lakes Academy is an Alternative Provision education establishment for students who, for a number of reasons, are unable to attend a mainstream school.

At South Lakes Academy we will provide a safe, supportive learning environment with opportunities for each student to develop the skills and knowledge to become a responsible, successful citizen.

Our core beliefs are:

  • Students are unique in their needs, thought processes and learning styles, and will be motivated in different ways.
  • Parental support and involvement is necessary to motivate students for optimum success in education.
  • It is essential for each educator to demonstrate genuine concern and care for each student to learn.
  • Self-esteem and self-respect are critical for fulfilling life.
  • Students are entitled to a socially, emotionally and physically safe learning environment.
  • Having been given opportunities, everyone is accountable for their own success.
