School Description

Excel and Exceed Centre is part of a nationwide collective of hospital schools owned by Cygnet Health Care Limited. It is a specialist provider of education for pupils and learners with diagnosed mental health conditions. Pupils and learners attend the school from different local authorities across the country. Cygnet Health Care Limited purchased Alpha Hospitals in September 2016 and took over responsibility to provide education for young people aged between 12 and 19 who are either undergoing mental health assessments or are receiving treatment. The headteacher joined the school in January 2017. Inspection report: Excel and Exceed Centre, 26–28 June 2017 Page 8 of 11 The aim of the school is to ‘provide equal access to high quality education for all children and young people with mental health needs, keeping education alive in pupils’ lives, maintaining progress and enabling them to achieve their potential whilst in hospital.’ Most pupils and students remain dual-registered in their time at the school. Pupils’ home school sometimes provides work to complete in addition to the timetable offered by the Excel and Exceed Centre. Pupils and students are taught in classrooms within the school and occasionally on the wards. The length of time pupils and learners are with the school varies from one week to several months. On average, they attend for between six and eight weeks. Pupils and students join the school with a wide range of needs and abilities. A high number of pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Some are in the care of local authorities. The school does not receive additional money through the pupil premium funding. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.
