Meet the Team

Don’t just take our word for it

this is what our parents have to say …

My son started Foxfields Academy in December after being a mainstream school refuser and very hard to manage. Since starting my son has come on leaps and bounds and is actually wanting to go to school.

School have also been very helpful and friendly, will help at any time of the day. With excellent communication.

I had my reservations about my daughter going into Foxfields due to previous experiences but the staff team were amazing.

Everything that could be done was. The staff were really lovely and kind, answering all of my questions. The staff are compassionate and respond to anything that crops up straight away, they listen to me and my daughter.

Since joining Foxfields my daughter is a completely different child.  She’s gone from being carried into school upset and mute to walking in chatting.  She’s been in the classroom for every lesson, taken part in lunchtime activities and even made friends.  It’s made a huge difference to her confidence already and she’s so much happier for it.  The school has a real family feel. It’s like you’re all part of a little community.  She actually loves school and wants to be there.

and more importantly

this is what our pupils think of their school …
