Information about the school

Break Through is a small alternative independent school with 25 to 45 young people on roll a day, years 7 through to 12 at risk of exclusion, not on an educational roll, the self excluded and on fixed term exclusion.Some students are on roll at a mainstream school and some are on roll at Break Through only. A number of students have an EHCP plan and some have Social Service support.

The staff team at Break Through recognise there are often multiple and complex needs that can be reflected in young people’s behaviour. Some young people are not yet equipped with the emotional intelligence to sustain or engage with education. Others need to be re-motivated, refocused and re-engaged towards viewing their futures positively. Our over arching aim is for young people to successfully reintegrate into mainstream provision. If reintegration is not considered a suitable option, in partnership with other agencies Break Through will support the young person onto their next progression route.

A structured timetable includes Maths, English, ICT, Science, Art, Life Skills and PE; other curriculum areas are also covered and linked to accredited programmes; all of which are embedded with Personal, Social, Emotional and Behavioural Development. Partnership working is paramount to this programme, Break Through work closely with Teachers, Key Workers, Parents/Carers/Guardians and Young People to seek resolutions to presenting problems.

Break Through’s needs led approach enables staff to be adaptable and holistic in delivery and assessment; and barriers to participation are alleviated.
