Parkview Academy

Situated in Margate, Parkview Academy was established in 2017 and caters for students experiencing learning difficulties associated with Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH).

A large four storey property with an enclosed garden, the school is well equipped to offer one-to-one or group teaching for students at all levels, with the opportunity to achieve nationally recognised accreditations in a variety of subjects through NCFE, AQA and ASDAN.

We aim to equip our students to become valuable members of society with the skills they need to enjoy a full, well-integrated and satisfying life, providing an encouraging and rewarding environment.

Through prioritising a culture of mutual trust and respect, we aim to encourage a life-long love of learning to enable all students to look towards their future with aspiration and a firm belief that they can reach their full potential.

Our Curriculum

Parkview Academy offers a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum. The teaching is centered around an understanding of each child & young person’s needs and learning styles, and nurtures the unique talents of every student.

Our Philosophy and Expectations

We believe that disruptive and challenging behaviour always has an underlying cause. As a result, we use consequences sparingly, and ensure that we prioritise developing a culture of mutual trust and respect in order to help each and every child & young person to reach their full potential.

Training & Development Image

Parkview Academy fundamentally operates within two main principles:

All children & young people, without exception, are to be valued as unique and special members of society, with the ability to exceed and achieve.

Religious Education

R.E. will be embedded into the curriculum, giving students opportunities to gain knowledge of the diverse religions practised worldwide. Parents/guardians/carers have a right to withdraw their Children & Young People from specific religious instruction.


Parkview Academy will not tolerate bullying in any form. A comprehensive anti-bullying policy operates within the school along with a set of procedures to identify and deal with any incidents quickly and effectively.

All school policies and procedures are available on request.

“Pupils make sure not to miss school. This is no surprise considering the warm, friendly welcome they receive when they arrive.

The passion and patience shown by leaders and staff helps make a real difference for pupils.

This is a school that really believes in its pupils. Leaders and staff keep their expectations high. They pay close attention to pupils’ troubled previous experiences of education, but only to meet pupils’ current needs better. Staff are determined to help pupils achieve all they can in whatever limited time is available during their placement at the school.

The recent charity coffee morning and community garden project were both terrific achievements. Pupils and staff are tremendously proud of this work.”
