Education’s purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.

We are a centre designed to work with young people, schools, families and other associated professionals.

A Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 Centre based in Collenswood Road, Stevenage provides education for young people in KS3 and KS4 who are permanently excluded or at risk of permanent exclusion from their school whether in Stevenage or elsewhere in North Hertfordshire.

We aim to assist young people in returning to a permanent full-time education placement whether it be a school or elsewhere. We will then assist in supporting their reintegration. In addition to the on-site provision above we also provide, when space allows, opportunities for full-time Respite places for half-term blocks. In the afternoons we offer a ‘Back on Track’ Group for those young people who need a little refocusing on their school provision.

Our Outreach Service work with Secondary schools in the Stevenage area to assist in preventing permanent exclusions and reducing the number of pupils at risk.

Added to this we also support our local schools in the development of their staff through Behaviour Support Network Groups and in providing training opportunities/experience allowing staff to build up knowledge and experience.

Visitors, whether parents or associated professionals are always welcome.
