MacIntyre Academies

Discovery Academy

Discovery Academy opened in September 2014 in Nuneaton, Warwickshire for children and young people, aged 9 – 19 years who have an Education, Health and Care Plan for autism or a social, emotional or mental health need.

Discovery Academy had its first Ofsted Inspection in July 2018. The result was good in all areas. You can read the full report here or download it below.
