Education is at the forefront of our services providing opportunities for children and young people to achieve success in a range of learning opportunities. We link the majority of our learning to appropriate qualifications to increase each young person’s sense of self-worth; we celebrate all success and effort daily, weekly and in celebratory events.
Each school is unique in that it offers specialist teaching and learning for its students on an individual basis which means that class sizes are small and progress is outstanding. Our Schools are registered with the Department of Education and inspected by OFSTED.
