Coritani Academy

In October 2014 Coritani Academy opened, as part of Isle Education Trust.  In January 2021, the academy moved from Henderson Avenue to its new location at Wyredale Road.  The academy works with local schools and local authorities to ensure that students who cannot thrive in a mainstream school environment have a quality educational alternative.

Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Coritani Academy.  We are a small academy offering academic qualifications to students who may find learning difficult in mainstream school.  We deliver relationship-based education, a learning experience for students that is truly unique and tailored to the needs of the individual child.  Our staff are open and caring and have a passion and desire to ensure that students achieve excellent outcomes at the end of their time with us.

The Academy offers a safe and welcoming environment for children from Year 3 to Year 13.

Low admission numbers mean that we can offer one to one and small group learning that is truly matched to individual need. Class sizes at the Academy are a maximum of 8 children.

Our belief is that students will thrive when they feel safe and supported within their surroundings and once we have this right the best start in life we can give them is a good set of academic results. 

Our Academy boasts results well above the national averages for similar alternative Academies and in some cases for mainstream schools.  Our latest Ofsted rated us as “good”, with “outstanding “ outcomes, leadership and personal development and wellbeing.  We have an excellent track record of re-engaging students in education and ensuring they achieve excellent results that allow them to move on to their next steps in life.

Our students are proud of their academy, and those who have left to go on to successful placements at college, school sixth forms or back in to mainstream school continue to visit and contact the academy in to their adult lives.

Coritani Academy is part of Isle Education Trust (IET) which is a multi-academy trust and includes Epworth Primary Academy and South Axholme Academy.

If you would like to visit the Academy or require any further information, please do get in touch.

Mr Dave Flowitt
Executive Principal
