I am delighted to be the Principal of Addington Valley Academy, a new Special Free School in Croydon for children and young people with autism and learning difficulties.
Addington Valley Academy is a co-educational Special School with 150 places for children and young people aged 2-19 who have autism and social communication, cognitive, sensory and social, emotional, and behavioural needs in the Croydon region.
