Welcome to Stephenson Academy

"On Track to Success"

Judged by Ofsted as "Good In All Areas" in December 2018

Stephenson Academy is a successful SEMH special school, which opened in 2012. It has a main site, which caters for 11-16 year olds. We have an associated independent sixth form provision for 16-19 year olds within the Trust. We have recently built a new primary department to  expand into years 5 and  6 for pupils aged 9-11 years which has increased our capacity from September 2023 to 117.

As a specialist academy we cater for students who have Education and Health Care Plans with an identified primary need of Social Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties (SEMH), some with associated challenging behaviour. Many of our students have additional special educational needs such as speech, language and communication difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and mental health difficulties.

We serve Milton Keynes, and the surrounding local authorities when places are available.

We aim to give every student here the best chance to succeed. The wellbeing of our students is our top priority and we have a dedicated multi-disciplinary team to support you and your children.

We want our students to become happy, successful and independent young people who are able to make a positive contribution to society. Our students achieve well during their time with us and leave the academy with relevant qualifications and work experience, which supports them in gaining employment.

Please contact the academy if you would like to know more as we are happy to share how we work.
