Nightingale Community Academy will, as far as is possible, remain open to support the families of key workers and the vulnerable children we serve. If you are uncertain about what to do please feel free to email info@nightingaleca.org and we will respond to you urgently. We will shortly be providing further information about any additional support we will be able to provide to our families. Click here for the latest update.

Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Nightingale Community Academy where boys aged between 5 and 19 can find a safe and stimulating environment in which to learn. We are meticulous in our attempt to know and understand the needs of our boys so that we can deliver expert management and teaching of behaviour to facilitate high-quality learning experiences. We work with community and family to deliver a curriculum that is varied, stimulating and sympathetic to the complex needs experienced by the children in our care.

We take pride in the development of young people who can take the knowledge and experiences we provide into the next phase of their education or training. We aim to instil community values that enable boys to live healthy and fulfilling lives; certain in the knowledge that they have developed the skills and independence necessary to engage fully in an ever more connected and challenging world.

Andre Bailey - Principal


Everybody has the right to learn, to be respected,
to feel safe and to be treated fairly


The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
