Headteacher Nazya Ghalib said: “We are a unique school set in beautiful private grounds surrounded by nature. The school’s purpose is to help young people who are out of formal education carve pathways for future success. All our students have had chequered educational experiences and we seek to change that through a bespoke and therapeutic provision.

“Achieving the wellbeing award for schools recognises the impact of our work to re-engage young people with education. I am extremely proud and pleased for the whole school community.”
