About Us

Empowering Success Through Holistic and Individualised Learning

Parkview Academy is an Independent Special Needs School for young people aged between 7 and 19 with an Education Health Care Plan. We are Ofsted registered and cater to 40 young people who have struggled in mainstream education due to their special educational needs. 

Our unique selling point is that we offer small classes or one-to-one learning where the curriculum is tailored to the needs of the individual. We also recognise the importance of building up routines, relationships, respect, and trust to achieve successful teaching and learning. 

The school is based on Park View Road, opposite Welling United Football Club. We are also very close to Danson Park and Crook Log Leisure Centre which the school uses to provide a range of sports and recreation activities. The school benefits from several unique learning spaces. Downstairs we have our Life Skills Suite and sixth form area. Upstairs the school is separated into key stages along with having a drama studio, practical kitchen space, library, and media suite where learners have the opportunity to learn DJ and digital music skills as well as contribute towards the school’s radio station

Parkview Academy ensures that all learners work towards a Foundation Learning Curriculum. This ensures that each individualised timetable includes as a minimum core skills in English, maths and ICT, Vocational Learning, and Personal and Social development. 

SMSC Statement

At Parkview Academy SMSC is at the heart of everything we do. We are passionate about providing all students with opportunities to develop an awareness of their school and wider community through Social, Moral, Spiritual, and Cultural experiences. We understand that for many of our students exposure to the wider world can be limited and as such, they may struggle with fundamental life skills and social interactions. We are committed to providing a supportive and highly cohesive community where our students develop resilience, empathy, and understanding to succeed in Modern Britain.
