Welcome to Aegir – A Specialist Academy


Welcome to Aegir, where every student's learning is celebrated as a unique journey of growth and achievement. Here, we foster a 'Can Do' spirit, empowering our students to overcome obstacles and aim to be the best they can be. With each day, our students are guided towards breaking barriers and realising their fullest potential.


As the proud Headteacher of Aegir, I am privileged to lead a team of experienced and passionate staff dedicated to nurturing the potential of every student who walks through our doors. Our academy is a beacon of support and inclusivity, offering a specialised education for pupils and students aged 11 to 19 with a diverse range of learning difficulties, including autism, dyslexia, Asperger’s syndrome, moderate, severe and complex learning difficulties.


At Aegir, our ARC values – Aspiration, Respect, and Connection – form the cornerstone of everything we do. We believe in setting high aspirations for our learners, celebrating their achievements at every level. We foster a culture of respect and understanding within our school community. Through meaningful connections with our students, families, and staff, we create a supportive environment where every individual is valued and empowered to succeed.


Our purpose-built setting boasts outstanding facilities designed to cater to the unique needs of our students. With a rich and stimulating bespoke curriculum, we strive to ensure that each learner thrives academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. We celebrate diversity and champion the growth of our students into aspirational members of our community and the wider world.


I invite you to explore our website and discover the vibrant life of Aegir. Whether you are a current parent or carer, or considering joining our school community, we welcome your visit and are here to provide any further information you may need. Together, let's embark on a journey of learning, growth, and achievement at Aegir.
