Active Support is an Independent Special School supporting learners aged between 9 years and 16 years of age. We offer full and part time places for young people struggling to cope in mainstream education due to complex, social, emotional and/or behavioural needs.
We believe small changes make a big difference in improving our learners lives mental health and general wellbeing. This is the foundation for the future.
To deliver high quality personalised learning programmes that inspire learners to re-engage in education and support their positive development in mental health and wellbeing.
We understand many learners have emotional and behavioural needs coupled with a lack of academic progression. They often lack confidence; unable to trust others or develop relationships; or lack the ability to recognise and manage their emotions.
By working to a personalised learning programme with intensive behaviour management support, we aim to:
“At Active Support, we focus on inspiring young people to get back into mainstream education and training. We work with individuals and their families in the toughest of situations, helping to turn their lives around by providing the support, skills and knowledge that they need to move forward in life. Inspiring educational achievement is at the heart of what we do. Active Support Education transforms the life chances of pupils who previously have become disaffected with education”
