Welcome to LWS Academy. We are a small specialised academy for boys based on the beautiful south coast.
Our specialist secondary school was established in January 1996 to educate and support boys with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties, our new designation is as an Academy for students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. The Academy aims to meet the needs of secondary aged boys who have difficulty managing social interactions; and recognising and regulating their emotions in order to promote positive mental health. As an educational establishment we strive to improve outcomes academically, but at LWS we acknowledge that good mental health, social skills and emotional development is the priority for our students.
