My name is Simon Bainbridge and I am very proud to introduce myself as Executive Head for Highfield Littleport Academy and Highfield Ely Academy. Both of the Highfield Academies are area special schools. I am also Director for SEND and Inclusion for the Active Learning Trust.  This means they have a catchment area (much the same as mainstream secondary school), and have on roll pupils with a wide range of Special Educational Needs. All our pupils and students have Education, Health and Care Plans, or Statements of Special Educational Needs and need a moderately or heavily adapted curriculum to suit their individual needs.


My name is Yvonne Skillern and I am pleased to introduce myself as Head of School for Highfield Littleport a local area special school.  I enjoy working with the Executive Head to create an outstanding educational provision for our learners, meeting each of their individual needs.  I am passionate at ensuring students fulfil their potential.  Highfield Littleport and Highfield Ely work collaboratively to ensure we prepare students for their next step in education and learning whatever their needs and abilities.
