Mary Rose Academy

Solent Academies Trust

Empowering Excellence & Equity for Everyone


A very warm welcome to the Mary Rose Academy

We are a special school for 181 pupils aged 2-19 years, situated across three sites in Portsmouth.  We provide a highly specialist, personalised curriculum for young people with the most profound, severe and complex learning difficulties. In addition, the majority of pupils have co-occurring needs including: Autism Spectrum Condition, severe physical disabilities and highly complex medical conditions.

At Mary Rose our vision is to empower our community, within and beyond Mary Rose to achieve great things; experience awe and wonder and to have our voices heard, now and for the future.

We seek to prepare every member of our community for the next significant phase in their lives, whatever that might be, at every age and stage, putting our pupils and their families at the very core of all that we do

When we make a decision the first questions we ask are:  

"How will our pupils and families benefit?”  and “What impact will this have for life beyond Mary Rose?”

At every turn, we hold our core values: Innovate, Challenge, Flourish, at the centre of all that we do.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
