Welcome

I am delighted to be the new Principal of Addington Valley Academy, a new Special Free School in Croydon for children and young people with autism and learning difficulties.

We are currently located at our refurbished, temporary site in Canterbury Road, Croydon until our newly constructed school, purpose designed to meet the needs of pupils with autism and complex needs, opens at Field Way, New Addington from September 2021.

Addington Valley Academy will be 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.

Mr John Reilly - Principal


Addington Valley Academy is an Ambitious and Inclusive School


I think your school and staff are amazing – you have wowed me!
