Introduction from the Principal

Introduction from the Principal summarising the core principles of the school and our journey so far


Stone Soup Academy will provide places for students who are outside of mainstream education. Students are referred by schools and local education authorities from across the East Midlands.


We only accept referrals through schools.

Parents cannot 'choose' Stone Soup Academy as an option for secondary education in the first instance as we are set up to deal with learners at risk of exclusion.

For more information, please view our Admissions Policy.

While we do not have open days, potential students are invited via their referrer to visit the Academy for a tour of the site with their parent/carer.
