Westham Academy stands as a beacon of specialized educational and social nurturing, offering a distinctive environment tailored to the multifaceted needs of its student population. Within its halls, individuals find refuge and support, particularly those who have encountered difficulty and disappointment within conventional educational or familial settings.

The diverse student body at Westham encompasses a significant number of learners who have been diagnosed with conditions such as Asperger’s syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), and a spectrum of other disorders within the realm of autism.

These diagnoses serve as testaments to the unique challenges these students face, challenges that often render them ill-equipped to navigate the rigors of mainstream educational programs.

These students, despite their potential and intelligence, often find themselves overwhelmed by the expectations placed upon them, struggling to cope within the confines of conventional schooling.
