The Avenue School-Special Needs Academy is a day, special school for boys and girls from the age of 2 – 19 with complex Special Educational Needs. It is situated close to the centre of Reading and is the only school of this type within the borough.

The many specialist teams work together to provide an innovative and creative curriculum delivered through some highly specialised techniques. The staff are trained to a high standard and are very focused on the individual needs of pupils. We have received many awards for our work including the very prestigious Specialist Status for Performing Arts – Dance, Music and Drama - an award of which we are all proud. The school is also the first in Reading to gain The Inclusion Quality Mark and its work in this area has been recognised as outstanding. Hard work and enjoyment go hand in hand as you will see if you explore the pages of our website.
