School Team

Welcome to Mountwood Academy

A special needs school for young people with autistic spectrum conditions aged 8-25 years old.

We are located in rural Preston and therefore benefit from some amazing outdoor space where we develop our outdoor and horticulture skills. We even grow our own vegetables which we then use in our cooking lessons and in our studies to achieve qualifications. Our students benefit from a range of qualifications including Arts Award, ASDAN Literacy, Maths and Science, AQA Personal Development and AQA Entry Level Qualifications, including Step Up to English and Step Up to Mathematics.

Our school specialism is creativity

Every young person at Mountwood achieves an Arts Award. We are also completing our Arts Mark and we are aiming to become a platinum school!

Our Vision

Our vision is to “nurture our young people through quality experiences to never stop learning and be the best they can be ” by ensuring that pupils receive the same learning and social opportunities as other children; which we achieve by providing facilities and a creative curriculum tailored to meet their needs.

With dedicated staff, a unique approach and purpose built facilities; we provide a supportive, safe and happy environment where all young people make progress regardless of ability level.
