Welcome to Fen Rivers Academy.


The Fen Rivers Academy is a special school that, when completed, will offer full time education and therapeutic support to 96 children aged 5 to 16 years old.  Pupils will be referred to the school by the local authority as part of their duties to arrange SEN provision. 


Phase one of the Academy is now open and offers primary places only.  The school occupies premises on Kilhams Way that have been converted specifically to meet the needs of the young people it will serve. 


Phase two will occupy the adjacent St Edmunds Academy premises once that school has relocated to its proposed new site in Lynnsport. It is planned that phase two will open in the refurbished premises in Autumn 2020 and offer places for secondary pupils at that point.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the public consultation about our plans to open The Fen Rivers Academy in the 2017/18 academic year. The consultation ended on 16 July 2017 and the survey has now closed.

The results of the consultation are available here:
