We are able to provide education at our DfE registered School providing a bespoke education package to young people aged between 10-19 years.
We aim to create an ethos and provide educational vision through effective teaching enabling successful learning and achievement by pupils and sustained improvement in their spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and to prepare young people for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
Delivery of the curriculum will depend upon the academic ability of the individual with specialist tuition accessed on a sessional basis according to need. However we undertake to deliver all core subjects, including Numeracy, Literacy, Geography, Science, PHSE, Art, and History alongside AQA qualifications in a wide range of subjects.
We aim to equip our young people with qualifications and skills that will enable them to pursue their aspirations. We hope to motivate and inspire a renewed interest in learning which will enable a more positive outlook for the future.
We have some excellent links with local schools and colleges and have been successful in obtaining full time placements for our pupils.
The school is located within 14 acres of land on the Willow Farm Site.
