About Centre Academy London

Centre Academy is London’s leading independent Special Needs School. Our Mission Statement of ‘Providing excellence in education for students with specific learning difficulties’, lies at the very heart of our school.  In order to provide for the often disparate needs we start at assessment and observation. From this we build a holistic, personalised curriculum, offering integrated therapy together with high academic expectations.

Through experience we have found that academic potential may previously have been masked. What appeared impossible soon becomes within reach. Each student presents with a unique profile, be that autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia or ADHD or a combination.  The journey begins when the student enters Centre Academy; we then nurture, guide and provide the right blend of academic opportunity.

The School supports all students to develop their full potential and has a solid academic record. We prepare our students to deal with real life challenges and provide support at each transition level, leading ultimately to college or university applications and the world beyond.

An extensive range of clubs and activities compliments an academic programme, which includes music, chess, computer programming, film, sport, debating and others.

Centre Academy is unique. Come and see for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you.



Ms Natalia Ambridge BA, MA
Head of School
