The full governing body was disbanded in September 2018 and the IEB was established by the local authority. The first meeting of the new IEB was held in October 2018. Membership of the IEB includes representatives from the local authority and two experienced headteachers. Phoenix College provides education for pupils who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. All pupils have an EHC plan. All pupils currently attending the school are boys. A small number of pupils access part-time activities off-site, rather than attending at the school. Currently, the providers of these activities are: Tutor Doctor, Rivers Gym, Reading Kicks, Whitley Amateur Boxing Club and Auto Skills. The school receives external support from the local authority, including the senior Inspection report: Phoenix College, 13–14 November 2018 Page 9 of 12 school standards officer and the corporate health and safety officer.
