- The Achievement Studio (Speech, Language and Communication Needs Resource Base)

The Achievement Studio is a supportive resource base for students who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs for

  • Speech, Language Communication Needs
    And / or
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorders

The resource base is located in the heart of the school where it is easily accessible to all TAS students.

Our teaching methods in the base reflect the ways in which the individual students learn.  We use strategies to reduce distractions, increase concentration and make all work accessible to students.

Students access the mainstream academic lessons with support, and attend the majority of their lessons with their tutor group.  Students typically access TAS once a week for a personalised learning package.


We accept 5 statemented students in every year group.  The priority is given to students with 'Wandsworth statements'.

Southfields Academy has undergone the first phase of the BSF project.  We have just moved into the new purpose built state of the art unit.  The students are extremely happy with the space and we are now able to do a lot more work with other students.

The new unit provides:

  • individual work areas for students,
  • specially designed small group class rooms,
  • therapy room,
  • more space for students to socialise in a safe environment.

For further information about The Achievement Studio please contact Ms Rabia Ahmed (TAS Manager), Ms Claire Reeves (SENCO) or Ms Amanda Desmond (Assistant Headteacher - Inclusion) at the Academy.
