Harry Watts Academy


Harry Watts Academy opened in September 2020 and caters for children between the ages of 5 and 16 with a diagnosis of Autism. Since opening, there has been a significant demand for places and we currently have 41 pupils on roll. Our students are at the centre of everything that we do, and we pride ourselves on our welcoming family atmosphere. We believe the strong pastoral links with home and the excellent relationships our staff build with our pupils, is the basis for effective learning and development.

We are proud to deliver a school which serves the city of Sunderland and neighbouring areas. Working together with you, our stakeholders and partners we will create a school which is recognised as a centre of excellence both regionally and nationally.
