Welcome to the Hub School and Specialist Services
We are a school offering specialist services for students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Our aim is to improve the life chances of young people for whom mainstream education has not so far been successful.We provide our students with an alternative educational experience that offers them a nurturing, safe and supportive environment, a diverse, qualified and experienced staff team and highly personalised learning programmes.We support our students to accelerate their academic, social and emotional skills development and ultimately enable them to re-engage with learning within a mainstream setting. Our curriculum creates valuable opportunities to nurture our students’ resilience, self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief.
We have three areas of learning within The Hub:
KS3 Short Stay is our early KS3 intervention and assessment area.
The staff team:a) assesses students referred by mainstream schools
b) develops personalised intervention programmes to develop the students’ social, emotional and behavioural (SEB) skills
c) supports students and mainstream staff to implement the SEB programmes. Students may also attend KS3 SS for small group/1-2-1 intervention sessions. Intervention lasts for a minimum of 12 weeks at the end of which the students are either able to cope effectively in mainstream school or referred to stay longer.How do I find out more or make a referral?To request an application please email –firstname.lastname@example.org.
