Name Agreed for New Special Free School

The name for the new special Free School in Croydon has been agreed as Addington Valley Academy. John Prior, Executive Headteacher/Deputy CEO of Orchard Hill College & Academy Trust said “we decided on the name because it fitted the location where the school will be based as well as being associated with the community we are joining.”  The School will open in September 2020 within a new, purpose-built building which is being built under the Free School programme.

The progress my son has made is phenomenal, we couldn’t be happier.

We feel very lucky that he is in this school.
