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.

  • Dear Families, Upon reflection of today, we have taken the decision to close the school from 2pm tomorrow (Tuesday). This will allow our students to be in air-conditioned vehicles at the hottest point in the day. We apologise for the disruption this may cause! Thank you

  • Our New Life Event has started! Come to Discovery from 10 - 2pm and see if there is anything you want! We have Children's clothes, Cosmetics, Fancy Dress outfits, Toys, drinks and snacks! Everything is free but donations are welcome!

  • Happy PiDay! Here is some of the pi's our young people have created #piday2022

  • Just a reminder that this Friday is our whole MAT conference day for all staff and our schools are closed to all pupils. We look forward to welcoming pupils back on Monday.

  • There will be no off site for anyone or forest based activities today due to Storm Eunice. If you are worried about your child travelling to and from site today due to how your area is affected, we understand. Please just call school today and let us know. Stay safe everyone
