Horatio House is a specialist centre in alternative educational provision and a provider of outreach services to schools and academies.
The centre supports young people to develop their social skills and achieve qualifications outside of the traditional school setting. With a high staff-pupil ratio, we have places for up to 64 secondary school aged pupils, who can attend for up to 16 hours of education per week. Most are for pupils in school years 10 and 11. Our aim is that they study at least five GCSEs or fully equivalent qualifications, gain real workplace skills and experience, and secure other qualifications to enable them to move on to further education, apprenticeships or full-time employment.
Our outreach team provides specialist staff to work in schools, delivering services which enhance inclusion and achievement. Working alongside school based colleagues, support is available to pupils to help them reach their full potential, through mentoring support for those struggling to cope.
Currently to attend the alternative provision at Horatio House pupils must be on the roll of an existing school and we cannot be the only provision for them.
