The Burton Academy is an alternative education provision for learners aged 11 to 16-years-old and whose needs cannot be met within a mainstream environment. In particular, the Academy provides placements for young people in the Torbay area (non-EHCP) who exhibit social, emotional and behavioural concerns.
A strong wrap-around approach at the Academy enables learners to build their confidence, overcome barriers to learning and progress to a positive next step in their lives.
Our high-quality, professional staff bring out the best in all learners through a personalised approach, enabling them to achieve beyond their expectations. Time with us can significantly improve a young person’s chances in life due to our mixture of high-quality teaching, consistency of boundaries and a nurturing philosophy.
We believe that all learners have the ability to succeed and make the most of the next stages of their lives. We promote key life skills so that they have the confidence and tools to reach their full potential as learners and citizens.
The Burton Academy is part of the Catch22 Multi Academies Trust.
