About Us

Oscott Academy is a registered independent school that supports the learning of students in Key Stage 4 (Year 10 and 11). Oscott Academy prides itself on its pastoral approach, fostering an environment where students can develop and be part of the Oscott Academy family.

We support students with diagnoses of ASD, ADHD, ADD and anxiety, in addition to those who display symptoms of SEMH.  We also support vulnerable students who have struggled to learn in a mainstream setting.

The school has a high level of student support with a ration of 4:1 (student to staff ratio).


Oscott Academy was opened in 2014 by Stewart Dance, an experienced practitioner with over a decades experience in educational settings. 

Oscott Academy's approach to creating a safe, family environment has enabled students at the academy to achieve positive outcomes Post 16.

All of our students move onto positive post-16. They all have impartial careers advice and support in their college/post 16 applications.
