We have a learner centred approach to teaching, and our class sizes range from 2 to 7 students per room. Our programmes are tailored to each student, and vary from one hour a week courses up to full time placements.
There are rules but it's also quite relaxed. Staff and students are on first name terms and we all share the same kitchen and lounge area at breaks.
Our admissions process is co-ordinated through local schools and Warwickshire County Council's Specialist Teaching Service, who refer young people to us that fit our delivery methods best.
Our mission is to re-engage young people into education through; the arts, helping them reach their creative & academic potential, and inspiring them to become lifelong learners.
Our core values are:
Delivering a student centred curriculum
Teaching young people to become independent learners
Fostering a growth mindset
Allowing creativity to flourish in every young person
