The New Skill Centre is an Independent School catering specifically for pupils with SEN needs aged 11 to 16

We provide a tailored educational provision for pupils who have found difficulty accessing mainstream provision or other forms of education.

We are passionate about providing personalised programmes of learning that enables each learner to rapidly progress. As a small welcoming school, we set high expectations for all our learners whilst providing a learning environment that immerses the young person in a curriculum which meets their needs now and in the future.

Our Vision

Our Vision is to provide the best opportunity for pupils to thrive; enabling the young person to progress academically, personally, socially and emotionally so they can fulfil their potential.

Underpinning this vision is the emphasis and value we place on building positive, supportive and trusting relationships with pupils, family members, carers and other professionals. At all times, we are striving to ensure pupils progress academically and to help all pupils become more resilient, adaptable, confident and capable individuals.

We are keen for you to find out more about what we do and would welcome you to get in touch to organise a visit. Please contact the school on 01473 290276.
