Executive Head’s Welcome
We are a Centre designed to work with young people, schools, families and other associated professionals.
A Key Stage 3 Centre based in Briar Patch Lane, Letchworth and Key Stage 4 Centre based in Bancroft, Hitchin providing education for young people in KS3 and KS4 who are permanently excluded or at risk of permanent exclusion from their school in North Hertfordshire area.
Our aim is to assist the 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 re-integration. In addition to the on-site provision above we also provide, when space allows, opportunities for full time Respite places for half term blocks.
Our Outreach Service work with Primary and Secondary schools in the North Herts area to assist in preventing permanent exclusions and reducing the numbers of pupils at risk.
Added to this our aim is to 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.
Dan Nearney, Executive Head
