“To advance education through creative means”

As the company has evolved, we have built a strong educational infrastructure and consequently gained Independent School Status. Each student is considered on an individual basis, and a tailor-made programme of education is designed to meet his or her specific needs. This may take the form of one-to-one tuition, group tuition, or a combination of both.

Each person’s individual achievement is far more important to us than league tables and the comments we have received from parents and students are very complementary in this respect.  However our statistics show that we have certainly enabled large numbers of students to gain good levels of attainment in nationally recognised qualifications, and our Ofsted report has confirmed that what we offer is ‘Good!’

The stats speak for themselves

“When establishing the school, the proprietor had a clear vision and a pragmatic strategy based on a desire to help young people in difficulty. This has been turned into a reality.”

Ofsted were clearly impressed by our students’ behaviour and achievements, and we are delighted that recommendations have been made to the Department of Education that we should increase our intake. We will therefore continue to expand our service, to accommodate more young people in our existing group provisions and also create additional groups in other locations throughout London and the surrounding areas.
