About Us

Sky Academy is state funded special school for young people in years 5 - 11 who have an EHCP to support their SEMH and SCL needs. Based in Taunton our catchment of young people comes from those who live within a 75 minute drive across Somerset. At our core is a belief that every young person deserves the right to an educative experience that prepares them for adulthood and opens doors at Post 16. We do this by providing a targeted core curriculum that focuses in equal parts on literacy, numeracy, PSHCE and PE. These areas are delivered as discreet subjects and offer the opportunity to gain a range of external accreditations as well as developing their mental and physical wellbeing. The curriculum at Sky is delivered both in and out of the classroom - with outdoor education, enrichment activities, forest school, art and development of emotional literacy and communication skills being an integral part of a young person's experience.
