School Description

The Gables Learning Centre has a highly committed staff team. Their work has a profound positive impact on the way pupils value and engage in their learning. Many pupils have had a traumatic start to life and have not been able to successfully access learning before coming here. Staff quickly build exceptionally strong relationships with pupils who appreciate that the staff genuinely care about them. Pupils quickly relax and feel safe in this school. The school has high aspirations for its pupils. There is an ambitious curriculum that leads to formal qualifications, including GCSEs. For many pupils, this is their first experience of being able to study towards any form of qualification. Pupils are, rightly, proud of their achievements. Pupils love coming to school and attend often. Pupils make exceptional progress in managing their behaviour. They begin to enjoy learning and grow in confidence during their time here. The school has an exceptionally rich and wide range of opportunities and experiences that go beyond the academic. Pupils enjoy these opportunities. Pupils learn how to act in a wide range of different situations and this helps to prepare them for life after school. For example, some pupils take responsibility for stocking the rewards vending machine, which is very popular.
