Alison Parr - Executive Principal Blackfriars Academy

At the outstanding rated Blackfriars Academy we are committed to providing an exceptional educational experience for children with a wide range of special educational needs aged 10 to 16. Ours is a welcoming school where each student is supported to develop a positive sense of self-worth and discover all that they can achieve.  

Our committed staff team is what makes us exceptional. We expect them to continually build on their expertise and experience so they can offer the best possible opportunities to students in their care.   

The broad and balanced curriculum we offer allows students to follow the National Curriculum, as well as working towards a range of externally accredited schemes tailored to their individual needs.  We work with students to nurture their skills in vocational and leisure activities so they can build their capacity and capability to live and work as adults within our society. 

As a school judged to be outstanding, we are also able to lead a Teaching School Alliance. This allows us to share the skills and expertise of our school with mainstream schools and Higher Education institutes and others in the local community to help create an increasingly inclusive society.
