Academic and Wellbeing Alternative Provision - Working with SEND students and others who may have lost their way

Students who may lose their way, struggle with mainstream school, we help academically and with wellbeing. Reducing the chance of students becoming a NEET and helping them enjoy learning. Leading to apprentices and college is our aim


Vocational learning, Project-based learning, and academic subjects all catered for. Helping and teaching students tools to cope and ways to learn the way that's best for them. We bespoke our teaching and packages to help meet the needs of the young people we work with. 

KS2 benefits from curriculum catch-up, reading, writing, and maths, our packages can be onsite and offsite, we deliver great support solutions working 1:1 and group work with groups. They learn through play and learn and enjoy the projects we work with them on so they continue to learn in a fun way. 
Helping them understand their emotions and best communicate how they feel. 

We work hard with SEND students from secondary schools on great projects, to ensure we aim for post 16 success. Giving necessary skills and qualifications to help them when they leave school. 

We deliver a cross-curriculum for the best results, some are quicker wins than others to build their confidence before tackling tougher tasks. 


Microsoft training delivery, building a CV, and portfolio of achievements increase the chances for college, employment, or apprenticeship. 

Delivery is in a leading mixed martial arts centre, demonstrating inspiration in all corners, working with approachable role models.

Local Offer


We are aware SEND students have a far greater chance to become a NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) post 16, our curriculum and small group support give students a great chance of stopping this trend and delivering in a place of work. 
Focussing on the student's hobbies and interests we create projects for them to work on to meet their curriculum, fall in love with education and build an outstanding portfolio for future employers.
