School Description

This was the first inspection of Expanse Learning Wigan School. It was first registered by the Department for Education in July 2018 and opened as a school in September 2018.

In addition to the pupils who are on the school’s roll, pupils who are dualregistered with their mainstream schools or pupil referral unit attend on short-term and/or part-time assessment placements. The school provides education for pupils aged 11 to 16 who are at risk of or have fallen out of education.
