Head of School's Welcome

Everyone at Stone Lodge is extremely proud of our academy where students continue to achieve and flourish both educationally and socially in our supportive and friendly environment. Our aim is to encourage all individuals to achieve their potential. Currently, our age range is from 5 to 16 years. (National Curriculum Years 1 to 11)

Stone Lodge Academy is a special school providing education for pupils who have a primary diagnosis of Moderate Learning Difficulties and who may also experience other complex difficulties, for example, we cater for pupils with a range of needs including; ADHD; ADD; Asperger’s Syndrome (High-Level Functioning); Autism (ASD) (where MLD is the primary need); Speech and Language Difficulties; Downs Syndrome.

All pupils are referred to us and funded by Local Authorities. Suffolk County Council administers our admission process.

Please feel free to look around our website but we believe that the only way to find out if we are the best setting for your child is to come and visit! Please do contact us for further information if you would like to know more. We look forward to showing you around the academy.
