Staff will provide teaching and support for all young people whatever their education background has been and pride themselves on engaging, creative approaches to learning.

Young people will receive daily teaching from highly skilled and enthusiastic subject specialists. With advice from the clinical team, a bespoke timetable will be created, with a combination of 1:1 and group lessons, core subjects, study support and creative enrichment opportunities to meet the needs of all students.

All young people will have a personalised education plan as a record of their education achievements and activities, something school and colleges welcome.

Specialist Learning Mentors and Higher Level Teaching Assistants will provide a wide range of education, engagement and enrichment opportunities, including post-16 options.

They will also have a pastoral role, and support service users when they go back to mainstream education.
