DfE Education at Primary & Secondary Levels

Our comprehensive, DfE registered, education provisions span the requirements of key stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils. Additionally, in partnership with local colleges and through two dedicated centres, we provide 16+ and vocational schemes where students can work towards recognised awards in a variety of skilled trades and professions.

Our KS2 provision, The Davenport School, is located within a mainstream primary school, where it enjoys a broad integration package whilst benefiting from the skills of our specialist education professionals.

The Old Priory School caters for our KS3 and 4 pupils who can undertake ASDAN, NPTC and NVQ programmes that are provided alongside GCSE's.

All provisions have high staff to children ratios that reflect the necessary levels of tuition, support and guidance outlined in individual PEPs.
