The school is situated on an industrial estate in Rotherham. The large site is contained within high metal fencing which is then contained within a further fenced-in area. The aims of the school are, ‘to provide a happy, secure and supportive environment where pupils are valued and can develop their confidence, self-esteem, independence, self-discipline, respect and concern for others and that achievement will be celebrated in all its forms’. Pupils attending the school have special educational needs and/or disabilities; for example, behavioural and emotional needs, learning difficulties and/or an autistic spectrum disorder diagnosis. Some have spent considerable lengths of time out of education. Pupils currently take part in physical education on the school premises. The school plans to access local leisure centre facilities for additional physical education activities. The school does not use any alternative education provision.
This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
