About Highfield Ely Academy

At Highfield Ely we value each and every one of our children as individuals and everything we do is designed to lead to the best possible outcomes for every student. We teach our pupils to celebrate every success and foster a genuine love of learning and participation. British values are taught explicitly but, more importantly, they are modelled by each member of staff all day, every day. This is a vibrant learning community which has its pupils at the centre of all that it does. The school has earned an excellent reputation in the local community and across Cambridgeshire. We strive to continuously develop our provision for our learners and work collaboratively with other professionals and parents in developing flexible programmes of learning. We prepare our pupils well for the next step, whether that is within our school or in preparation for further education or adult life. Our school is committed to safeguarding our pupils.

Highfield Ely Academy is one of Cambridgeshire’s Area Special Schools, based near the centre of Ely. Pupils benefit from having excellent access to local facilities including The Hive Leisure Centre and Ely Cathedral. We typically have 120-130 pupils on roll from Early Years to Year 14. The school is in spacious accommodation that includes specialist teaching rooms: Hall/gymnasium, food technology, science/technology, art, music, ICT, multi-sensory, soft play and sound/light rooms. Visiting therapists have their own suite including offices and therapy rooms. We have three minibuses, which enable pupils to access educational visits to numerous places from the swimming pool and riding stables to work related learning placements, courses at local FE colleges and even the seaside on a sunny day.

Mark Lowery, author of many popular childrens' books had this to say about Highfield Ely after he visited us for a literacy event.

"I just wanted to say how blown away I was by everything I saw when I came to visit you last week. I've worked in education for a long time and visited hundreds of schools, but there was something unique about Highfield. The students were fantastic and the staff were clearly dedicated and talented. On top of this, there was a buzz and a warmth about the place that made it feel very welcoming and special. If my experiences have taught me two things, it's that these things don't happen by accident, and that people are a lot more keen to tell you what you're doing wrong than what you're doing right. So I just wanted to say thank you for welcoming me to your school, and well done to everyone for creating such a wonderful learning environment."
