Welcome to Bloxham Grove Academy
The Gallery Trust has successfully submitted a bid to the Department for Education to open a free special school in North Oxfordshire for pupils with complex Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The school will offer specialist day provision for children and young people aged 7 to 18, and will mirror the values and practices of The Iffley Academy, Oxford, which was judged to be Outstanding by Ofsted in January 2015.
Kay Willett, Chief Executive Officer of The Gallery Trust, is project lead for the application: “At present, many pupils who attend Iffley Academy have to travel from Banbury and Bicester to attend our school in central Oxford. By opening a school in North Oxfordshire, we can educate these pupils in their local communities. The growth of housing development and the population in Banbury and Bicester is increasing, which is putting further pressure on special school places. A new school offering places for pupils with Cognition and Learning Difficulties, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Autistic Spectrum Condition will complement and extend the excellent SEND already provided by the state funded special schools in the area. We are really keen to hear the views of parents and carers about this proposal, so if you have a child with special educational needs or have an interest in SEN, please do register your interest so we can keep you informed on the progress of the Academy.”
