Improving opportunities and outcomes for our pupils and students is at the heart of all that we do. For children and young people, especially those with special educational needs or who experience other barriers to learning, our world can present many challenges.

This is the confidence that we aim to deliver.

We are steadily extending the reach of our provision within our local communities from primary through secondary to further education, smoothing transitions and giving pupils and students the benefit of expertise generated from our collegiate approach to knowledge-sharing amongst our staff. All of this is underpinned by a suite of shared services whose expert staff work closely with students and staff in each school/College centre and with affiliates and commissioning organisations to improve educational and operational quality at every level to benefit our students.
