Welcome to The Everitt Academy



The Everitt Academy is a Special Education school that was proposed by Suffolk County Council and is part of Catch22 Multi Academies Trust (MAT). The Academy offers full time education and therapeutic support to 50 vulnerable children in the Waveney district, aged 9 to 16-years-old with social, emotional and mental health needs that cannot be adequately supported in mainstream schools.


The Academy is based at Church Lane, Carlton Colville, Lowestoft in former primary school premises which have been converted specifically to meet the needs of the young people it serves. A strong wrap-around approach at the Academy enables learners to build their confidence, overcome barriers to learning and progress to a positive next step in their lives.


Our high quality, professional staff bring out the best in all learners through a personalised approach, enabling them to achieve beyond their expectations. Time with us can significantly improve a young person’s chances in life due to our mixture of high-quality teaching, consistency of boundaries and a nurturing philosophy.


We believe that all learners have the ability to succeed and make the most of the next stages of their lives. We promote key life skills so that they have the confidence and tools to reach their full potential as learners and citizens. At our school we have an amazing staff team who are very skilled at building relationships and nurturing the pupils within our care to be the best they can be.
