Construction work has started on a brand new Special School which will open in Kingsthorpe, Northampton in September 2017, sponsored by the Greenwood Academies Trust.
The Purple Oaks Academy will provide 100 places for pupils (3-18) with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD)/Asperger’s and/or Severe Learning Difficulties with an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) naming Purple Oaks Academy as the appropriate provision.
The academy will cater for a wide range of abilities from pupils who are able to function academically at their chronological age level or above, to those who are working at P levels.
Purple Oaks Academy will be co-located, on Whiston Road, Kingsthorpe, with the Green Oaks Primary Academy; which is already a member of the Trust.
