Welcome

I am exceptionally proud to welcome you to The Skills Hub, where we ‘Provide the tools for mastery’ by taking ‘PRIDE’ in everything we do. Staff and students reflect together to establish what is working well and how to move forwards. We aim to instil a solution focused thinking approach via a varied, practical and creative curriculum that enables students to express themselves whilst developing their many skills and talents. We celebrate the fact that we are all very different, but together, with parents and other stakeholders, we can achieve so much more.

 

Ms Laurie Cornwell - Executive Principal


We aim for our young people to lead a happy and holistically prosperous life by developing the skills for them to move successfully along their life journeys. This includes academic outcomes that reflects the best of their abilities, being able to sustain relationships and employment and maintaining healthy households.


Thank you, and God bless you for all the work you have done with my son. It feels like I have my son back.
