Our Mission

School Vision & Mission

We aim to offer a secure and structured environment promoting positive behaviour where disaffected and permanently excluded young people develop as confident and independent learners. Our overall aim is to support and facilitate the successful reintegration of pupils back into mainstream schools. Our work specifically targets social, emotional and behavioural skills and educational progress in order that young people achieve their full potential.
