Official opening of our new school building

Last night we celebrated the official opening of our new school building, we were joined by representatives from all of the partners who worked together to research, design, fund and build our new school.

The leader of Croydon Council, Councillor Hamida Ali, said: ‘This is my first visit to Addington Valley Academy and I have been blown away by the amazing facilities that are on offer to children right across the borough with special educational needs. The way that the school has been designed and the staff team are amazing. I am proud that Croydon has this excellent provision providing a great opportunities for children and young people.

One of our parents summed up our school ethos saying: ‘This school is more like a family than a school, everyone works together – parents, students and teachers. It is the most lovely environment. Staff care about your child in the same way that you care about your child. The learning is out of this world, my child has gone up in so many levels, I am so happy he is here.’

Special thanks to our two student ambassadors for their help at the event, they had the most important job of the night, cutting the red ribbon to declare to building officially open!

We were very proud of them as we are all of our incredible students.

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

We feel very lucky that he is in this school.
