We provide our young people with a balanced range of interesting, exciting and stimulating experiences that will allow us to concentrate on the core skills of communication, independence and emotional development.

Our aim at Endeavour Academy is to help our children and young people to understand and join in with the community around them as much as they possibly can. At the same time we want to promote a greater understanding of autism in our wider community.
We provide as much of our curriculum outside the Academy as possible so that our students learn how to adapt what they learn inside school to the outside world. This helps students to cope with real life experiences and get a sense of belonging to a wider community.
