Mary Rose Academy is a community special academy and specialist Sports College for 120 pupils aged 2-19yrs which opened in September 2006, situated in inner city Portsmouth, Hampshire.   The academy is an amalgamation of two special schools, Futcher School and East Shore School.  We moved into new purpose built accommodation at the end of February 2007. 
Mary Rose Academy caters predominantly for pupils with severe and complex learning disabilities, in addition to their learning disabilities many pupils have additional needs associated with physical disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder and medical conditions. All pupils have a Statement of Special Educational Need and can join the academy at any point in their career.  
We are committed to ensuring that every pupil receives an education that enables them to attain the highest levels of achievement possible. You will discover an academy that has created the most stimulating learning environment, a relevant and challenging curriculum and an active partnership with parents and the communities in which our pupils live, work and play.
