About Us

Being the Principal of Venture Academy, means that my days are busy, fun and filled with interactions with our pupils. Our school thrives on a good mix of teamwork and care, from both the pupils and the staff.

We are fully committed to the MacIntyre Academies values of Compassion, Ambition and Partnership, as evidenced through our curriculum, our policies and our behaviours. We cater for pupils in years 5-11 (ages 9-16) who may have Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties and/or Diagnoses of Autism or an associated condition. As a new Academy we are constantly seeking innovative ways to engage our learners and enrich and invigorate our curriculum.

We try to work supportively and collaboratively with pupils, families and external stakeholders and know that the more we can do to help families, the more successfully we can work with them to support our pupils to achieve their very best. As a compassionate school, one of our core beliefs is that everyone, regardless of background, circumstance or incident should be treated with continuous positive regard. This belief, coupled with our developing practice in restorative justice, means that pupils joining us get a fresh start and the support they need to start work towards achieving their ambitions.

If you want to know more, please check out the website in more detail, call the school and speak to a member of the team or book to visit us at your convenience. Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, we are here to answer any questions you may have.
