About Us

Addington Valley Academy

Addington Valley Academy will be a 150 place co-educational school specialising in autism and complex needs which addresses the social communication, cognitive, sensory and social, emotional, and behavioural needs of pupils aged 2 – 19.

Addington Valley Academy will initially be located at our temporary site in Canterbury Road, Croydon until our newly constructed school, purpose designed to meet the needs of students with autism and complex needs, opens at Field Way, New Addington from September 2021.

Our new School will enhance the experience of parents and carers and progress of children and young people through effective collaborative working and joined up service delivery with partners, especially health, education and family support practitioners.
