We recognise that all young people have the potential to realise their aspirations.
The ethos of our Alternative Provision is instilling a readiness to learn and work, opportunity, accountability and respect in our learners.
We offer small group teaching with a high staff to learner ratio in a supportive and directed learning environment.
Our aim is to equip learners with the skills to become responsible citizens and to have a fulfilling adult life. This is achieved through a focus on becoming resilient learners and preparation to take vocational Pathways or Apprenticeships towards a future career.
