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.
As a ‘Values’ driven Multi Academy Trust, everything we do is centred around these values. To achieve this, our students aspire to display the following 5 values in all they do:
Ambition - Fulfil your potential
Integrity - Be honest and trustworthy
Inclusivity - Respect for everyone
Endeavour - Always work hard
Resilience - Never give up
We believe that secondary education represents a major stage in the life of each young person and so we aim to work together with parents, carers, governors, agencies and the local community to support our young people; enabling them to develop and grow within this community and in building together a real sense of identity within The Beech Academy as part of the Evolve Trust.
As an Academy that caters for young people with a range of special needs including Autistic Spectrum Condition and moderate learning difficulties, we work on a daily basis to turn ‘I cant’s in to I cans’ and as the Head of School of the Beech Academy, I am proud to recommend it to you. We recognise the equal value of each individual young person and we aim to provide the best possible opportunities for your child. We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
Mr Neil Davies – Head of School
Executive Principal's Welcome
Welcome to The Beech Academy and The Evolve Trust. I am extremely proud to be the Executive Principal and work with Neil Davies (Head of school) to ensure that Beech continues to provide a first class education to all of our students. We are absolutely resolute in our vision to open minds, creating opportunities for all to believe in themselves, achieve their potential and develop the skills needed to succeed and enjoy life.
At Beech we know that all of our students have individual needs and that we need to remove the barriers to enable them to have bright futures. We aim to provide all students with opportunities to develop and flourish in a wide range of subjects, and to offer experiences outside of the norm so that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their education, training or employment.
We hope you find this website useful and we would be delighted to show you around our academy so you can see for yourselves, the first class education and experiences our students receive.

The values of Ambition, Integrity, Inclusivity, Endeavour and Resilience run through everything we do and are lived every day. We believe these are the bedrock of supporting our young people.
