About Us

Carew Academy is a special academy for pupils aged 7-18 with a wide range of ability levels and additional learning needs, including complex needs.

Due to the complex nature of pupils’ needs, we consider referrals to the school in the light of the needs of the whole school population. We do this to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of the whole school community.

All pupils have a Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) maintained by the London Borough of Sutton or other Local Authorities.

The school strives to develop the full potential of everyone within its community and is able to provide a broad and wide ranging curriculum, adapted to meet the needs of individual pupils. We are also able to offer pupils other opportunities through life-skills based lessons, residential visits, work experience and access to therapies, including Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Music and Drama Therapy.

History

This beautiful manor house is situated at the edge of Beddington Park, next to the historic St Marys Church. The building and grounds are steeped in Tudor history and the Carew family were in residence here for over four hundred years. Sir Nicholas Carew was the cousin of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII is said to have spent several days visiting the manor during their courtship. Elizabeth I, Sir Walter Raleigh and Jane Seymour are all said to have had links to Beddington and Carew Manor in particular. The great Tudor hall, boasts a magnificent arch-braced hammerbeam roof and is one of the few remaining examples in the country, other than Hampton Court Palace. Adjacent to the front of the building is Carew Manor Dovecote, which dates to the early 18th Century.

 

The school is making such a difference to the lives of our young people. I am immensely proud of all that you are achieving.

Cllr Ruth Dombey, Leader of Sutton Council
