Red Kite View

The Education Suite is a dedicated learning space including specialist maths, English and science rooms. We provide teaching and support for all young people whatever their education pathway. We offer engaging, creative approaches as a bridge to learning, underpinning a rigorous academic offer.


Young people receive daily teaching from the subject specialists. Following the advice of the clinical team. a bespoke timetable is created, with a combination of 1:1 and group lessons, core subjects, study support and creative enrichment to meet the needs of all students. Personalised Education Plans are in place for all young people to record lesson content, aims, progress and engagement.


Education staff communicate regularly with the multi-disciplinary team. We also liaise closely with all linked education settings, which retain responsibility for their student. We promote excellent progress and support transition back to school, college or training.


Alongside delivery of the core curriculum, we act as a host centre for external examinations, liaising with school/college exams officers, administering exams and supporting continuous assessment. Specialist Learning Mentors and HLTAs provide support with non-core subjects and have a pastoral role, for example with college/apprenticeship applications, and with transition into a new education setting upon discharge.
