Our vision is to open minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life.

The Beech Academy, which is part of the Evolve Trust is a high achieving Special Education Needs School with a great tradition of success. We believe that an

outstanding education develops our students academically, socially and morally, giving them the skills to be successful in whatever they do once they have left us. We also feel it is important for our young people to develop outside of the classroom and we offer a wide range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities to help prepare our students for the next stage of their education, training or employment.
