Welcome to the LWS Academy website, a small glimpse into life at  our fantastic school. Whether you are already a part of our community, a prospective parent or student, or a colleague who is interested in exploring the work we do here, we hope that you obtain all of the information that you need.

LWS is a specialist school for boys with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. Staff at LWS ensure that our core three values, Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Learn resonate throughout our school community to ensure successful outcomes for all. 

Our aspirational curriculum allows our students to experience a mainstream academic experience whilst being supported by a highly skilled and supportive staff team as well as smaller class sizes to ensure academic and pastoral progress. We enable our students through their learning journey and are always prepared to support them through the consequences of actions and guide them toward being able to regulate themselves in preparation for the life journey ahead of them.

Please take the time to view the short promotional video below to see LWS ‘in action’.
