Throughout the year we deliver bespoke, accredited, term-time alternative provision programmes for young people in Wiltshire, Swindon, Somerset, Berkshire, who are not in mainstream school at all times. We take referrals from Social Services, Youth offending teams, Looked after Children Teams (Virtual schools), mainstream schools, special schools and colleges.
