Welcome to The Ashwood Academy


"We are a place that offers an alternative way of learning to suit students' individual needs. Our students will feel confident in themselves and learn both in and out of the classroom. We put wellbeing first and students will be proud of who they are"


The Ashwood Academy, part of the Catch22 Multi Academies Trust, is a small, supportive alternative education centre for learners aged 11 to 16-years-old. The national curriculum is delivered within a flexible and nurturing environment that recognises individual needs.


The Ashwood Academy provides short-term placements for young people in the Basingstoke area who need additional behavioural, emotional or medical support. It is an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ school.


A strong wrap-around approach at the Academy enables learners to build their confidence, overcome barriers to learning and progress to a positive next step in their lives.
