Spring Lane


The KS3/4 Centre is a Pupil Referral Unit for young people aged 11 - 16 who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school.  The main aims of the centre are:

  • to work in partnership with local mainstream secondary schools to prevent permanent exclusion

  • to prepare students for and support them through reintegration (to either mainstream or special school) following permanent exclusion

  • In the case of students in Key Stage 4 who cannot return to mainstream school, the successful transition of students from Year 11 to either continued full-time education at Key Stage 5, work based training or employment.

In order to achieve our aims, we offer young people the opportunity to achieve, to raise their self-esteem, confidence and social skills and to see the value in learning.  Through a consistent approach and a clear rewards/sanctions system, we work with young people to develop strategies to enable them to manage their own behaviours.  Through self-regulation, young people can then enjoy success in settings outside of the Centre.

We offer a range of qualifications and experiences designed to meet the learning needs and social development of the young people, small class sizes and a personalised curriculum, including vocational placements.
