Principal's Welcome

Wishmore Cross Academy is a residential special school for up to 80 boys aged 9 to 16 years who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. We provide a highly effective and individual package of education, care and pastoral support to young people who may have only negative experiences of school. A safe, caring environment supported by high levels of staffing ensures that each pupil has the opportunity to make progress and achieve their full potential.

Please be aware that we are in the process of developing our website, however, I hope that you will find the current site informative; we welcome visits and inquiries to our academy.
