Welcome to Leolan Academy - Mossel Bay
Leolan Academy is a non-profit, special school supporting children who have complex needs including autism. Leolan Academy is committed to the development of each individual child’s abilities so that he or she may come to experience life to its full potential.
The Leolan Academy was started by the Principal herself, because of her own son (now already 17) being diagnosed with autism and hence experiencing the challenges of raising and educating a child with special needs, first hand.
The Leolan Academy approach provides structure, routine and a learning environment in which students can truly flourish, with communication being a vital part of every student’s education.
Small classes, arranged by age-group and ability, are overseen by a teacher and assistant. Staff are qualified, experienced and expertly trained to meet the diverse needs of Leolan Academy's students through tailored programmes and 1:1 educational support. Staff work closely with children’s families and other professionals to achieve shared goals with a collective and consistent approach; maximising children’s potential for success.
