KS3 Transition (ETP)


Our short-term (12 weeks) Alternative Education Provision, located in Newhaven, offers a unique opportunity for pupils to reset, rebuild resilience, and develop effective strategies to better manage their mainstream education. At our Newhaven centre, we understand that some students may face challenges in their regular school environment, and we provide a supportive and nurturing setting where they can thrive.

We acknowledge the positive effects that movement, being outdoors and out in nature can have on feelings of wellbeing and mental health and we are very lucky to have amazing outdoor spaces on our doorstep. During their time with us, students engage in a comprehensive programme designed to address their specific needs and help them overcome obstacles to learning.

Our skilled educators and dedicated support staff work closely with each student, providing tailored academic support, social-emotional guidance, personal development and individualised mentoring and regular exercise. We foster a positive and inclusive learning environment that promotes personal growth and academic success. Upon completion of the 12-week programme, we facilitate a phased return for students into their mainstream educational provision. This transition is carefully managed to ensure a smooth reintegration process, where students can apply the skills and strategies, they have acquired with us.

We understand the importance of ongoing support, which is why we continue to provide mentoring and guidance to these students even after they have returned to their mainstream schools. Our Alternative Education Provision is committed to empowering students, equipping them with the tools they need to thrive academically and personally. By fostering resilience, self-confidence, and a positive mindset, we strive to enable our students to achieve their full potential, both in the classroom and in life.
