Trax Academy

At Trax Academy we recognise that maintaining young people in education is of vital importance. Our school is registered as an independent school catering for a maximum of 30 students, aged 11-18 and provides full time education. We put a strong emphasis on vocational courses and broadly follow the national curriculum leading up to GCSE and functional skills accreditation. We offer a variety of educational packages to small groups of students who are residents of Care 4 Children homes as well as to an increasing cohort of day students.

We offer all students our bespoke education at our uniquely equipped Academy sites located in Preston and Lytham St Annes. Our aim is for students to build up self-esteem and attain nationally recognised qualifications which will provide a pathway to apprenticeships and adult employment and integration into community life.

In addition to the cohort of our internal Care 4 Children students, we are now able to offer education packages to day students. Upon admission all new students will complete the robust and extensive Trax Academy induction programme which will put strong emphasis on health and safety.
