School Description

Releasing Potential School is part of the wider Releasing Potential charity which aims to ‘create a place of safety and fun for young people, allowing them to take managed risks that lead to breakthroughs in social and emotional well-being’. Releasing Potential is located on two sites, one in Havant and the other in Chichester. Both sites occupy former industrial premises which have been refurbished to provide Inspection report: Releasing Potential, 15–17 May 2018 Page 8 of 11 educational facilities. The school makes considerable use of local leisure, sporting, recreational and wildlife facilities to educate pupils off site. In addition, the school operates a shop and an outboard motor workshop to provide work-related studies. Some pupils spend time at the school’s allotment or looking after the school’s herd of alpacas in a field nearby. The school currently offers provision for pupils aged between 11 and 18 years who do not thrive in mainstream schools and who struggled to cope with the expectations of their previous schools. Pupils are currently placed by two local authorities, Hampshire and West Sussex. The school caters for pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Every pupil has an education, health and care plan because of their special educational needs. Most pupils demonstrate challenging behaviour and have spent a considerable amount of time out of school. Students in the sixth form are placed at Releasing Potential because they are emotionally vulnerable and would not suit mainstream post-16 education.
