The Skills Hub provides full-time education for children as an interim arrangement while appropriate substantive placements are being secured or a child is deemed ready to return to their mainstream school (ideally, an interim placement should be expected to last for no more than 12 weeks with a review after 6 weeks; the review, however, may result in an extension to the interim period provided further reviews are necessary).

Testimonials

As a parent of a child who struggled in primary and secondary main stream schools academically and socially, I think this school is amazing, instead of labelling and rejecting it’s students for their behaviours, it focuses and encourages their real talents to come to life. This school sees every student as an individual and works towards getting the best out of them with patience, time and understanding. My child has thrived and reached so many academic and personal goals that she is finally who she wants to be and is happier, so thank you.

I would like to tell you that after just 3 weeks at The Skills Hub my son has changed his whole look on life. He suffers a lot with his mental health and anxiety. He has not been happy in education since leaving primary school 2 years ago. His experience at senior school has been a roller coaster of emotions. His anxiety was effecting his attendance as well as his behaviour. I used to have to deal with major melt downs and very severe behaviours. His whole life has turned full circle and I have got my boy back. This is all thanks to your school and fantastic staff. He gets up and sorts himself out and looks forward to coming in.
