Welcome – The Connected Hub

Welcome to The Connected Hub.  We are a Year 11 only Pupil Referral Unit where students are given the opportunity to re-engage with education in a small, nurturing setting.  Every day is a fresh start here and we believe in unconditional positive regard.

We provide a personalised curriculum for students, with small group sizes, whereby they can gain GCSEs alongside vocational opportunities.  We see education as a holistic experience, and students have key worker sessions, mentoring, PSHE lessons and enrichment activities.  We work closely with our multi-agency partners and providers to ensure the best possible outcomes for students.

We have high expectations of students, and our code of conduct is based around relationship building, respect and interventions.

We aim to create a safe and caring environment in which everyone is valued equally and there is mutual respect, co-operation and support.

Our students are made aware of local, national and global issues through our theme of the week, and we promote respect and equalities through this and our day to day practice.

We help our students build their confidence and self-esteem so that they are able to engage in education, employment and leisure activities and reach their full potential.  We want our young people to enjoy lifelong learning and be happy and fulfilled; to be self-confident, responsible, valued, and to be proud of their own and others’ achievements.

We are proud of what we have built here and of our positive reputation, and we hope that all students and parents/carers will enjoy their time here and make the most of it.
