I am privileged to be the CEO/Principal of Central England Academy Trust which consists of Oak Wood Primary School, Oak Wood Secondary School, Higham Lane and Jade School. The trust provides an education for young people aged 4 to 19 including mainstream secondary pupils and two special schools and who have a wide range of special educational needs including profound, severe and moderate learning disabilities. A growing number of our young people have an autistic spectrum condition and complex learning needs.
