Our Commitment

We are committed to providing all of the young people we support with a fresh relationship with learning and to achieving academic success whilst recognising the pressures schools and local authorities face to deliver more with less.


Every young person we work with is treated as an individual and at our provision we aim to ensure they are afforded the same opportunities to achieve their goals and realise academic outcomes that support progression as their peers in mainstream school.

We tailor our provision to the needs of the individual ensuring that however long they may be learning with us, their needs are understood and that they can enjoy their study in a safe, secure and supportive learning environment.


As your needs change from week to week, you require services that can respond quickly and efficiently to that change and at no additional cost to your school or service.

We fully understand that the services you need to support your students must be scalable, able to flex up and down in response to demand and still ensure every student is treated as an individual whether they are placed with us for days, weeks or years.


Monitoring of student engagement and achievement starts with a 360° view of the individual. From real time attendance and engagement data for offsite learners to individual and detailed cohort reporting, our monitoring system ensures all student data and tracking is available 24/7.

Monitoring progress from baseline and regular termly assessment through to final examination, we provide a comprehensive approach to learning and progress assessment, supported by regular face to face reviews to monitor progress and plan interventions.

Best Value

Delivering and evidencing best value is a key part of any public sector commissioning process. With increasing demands on a pressurised budget, schools and local authorities face difficult decisions in the coming years to balance quality, progression, outcomes and the cost of alternative provision.
Our costs start from as little as £8.20/hour and we offer our customers different pricing models that ensure they are able to respond to short, medium and long term demand for alternative provision and to increase or decrease the service provision as those needs change.


Excellence in our teaching and learning practice starts with strong academic leadership supported by extensive teaching experience in mainstream, SEN, alternative provision and online settings. Our education team is led by our Academic Advisory Board and directly supported by our learning leadership teams.
We are firm believers in the transformative power of education and the value of an integrated and holistic pedagogy. Quality of teaching and learning is therefore underpinned by our curriculum and pedagogy which focuses on Learned Knowledge, Learning Skills & Learning dispositions.


We employ a comprehensive and pro-active approach to safeguarding and child protection for the vulnerable young people we support. That approach has been quality assured by numerous local authority commissioning processes and is strengthened by an extremely robust and secure suite of management systems. Our technical infrastructure uses AWS cloud services built to ISO:27001 standards providing the highest data security and offering increased flexibility, scalability and resilience ensuring service continuity for all of our customers.


We view our clients as partners in the delivery of our services. Our approach places the learner at the centre of that partnership and we communicate directly with school and local authority professionals with honesty, integrity and transparency. We work pro-actively with all stakeholders to ensure the best possible outcomes for each individual learner.
