A very warm welcome to Orion Academy website, which we hope offers you an insight to life at Orion Academy. At Orion Academy, we offer a supportive environment that provides a curriculum that enables our students to become inspired learners, with the confidence and ability to engage with the world of work and relationships.

Orion Academy is a Special Academy for students aged 11 – 18 years, with Social, Emotional, and Mental Health Needs. The academy is situated in Blackbird Leys, Oxford, and accepts students from across Oxfordshire. We are a small, specialised academy, where students are respected, supported, and encouraged.  Orion Academy moved into a fantastic new building in September 2021, which offers students and staff the opportunity to work in purpose-built and state of the art facilities.

Our students have a range of additional needs, including Autistic Spectrum Condition, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Speech and Language Difficulties, and Specific and Moderate Cognition and Learning Needs. Orion Academy facilitates the social, emotional and academic development of students through a personalised approach that ensures all students are valued. We offer a tailored curriculum that is delivered by a dedicated and experienced staff team.
