Hello and welcome to the Cedars Academy.
We are an all-age school for children and students aged 5 to 19 years.
We are one of a number of Special Schools in Gateshead. We specialise in providing education for children and young people with physical and medical needs, speech and language disorders, some types of autism, and a wide range of other complex needs often associated with emotional vulnerability.
Every child deserves the finest educational opportunities; we provide this - plus a huge range of extra activities. Our focus is on the positive. We want every child to be happy, secure, and to achieve, and to gain self-confidence through achievement. This may come via sporting, creative, educational or social opportunities. We focus on the individual needs of every child, working in close liaison with their parents or carers.
