Welcome To



Activate offers a Momentum Programme for Key Stage 4 pupils which enables them to follow their GCSE courses alongside a bespoke programme which helps them to re-engage in education and return back to mainstream school.

Our motto is “Believe, Aspire, Achieve” and our aim is to enable all learners to succeed and to strive for excellence in everything they undertake. Our dedicated, enthusiastic and highly qualified staff will also aim to support the progress of the learners, enabling them to develop self-esteem, confidence, self-worth and engagement in education. We are therefore keen for our pupils to take full advantage of the wide range of exciting activities which the Centre has to offer, both within the classroom and beyond. The Momentum Programme is centred around:

  • Developing the educational and personal potential of a pupil in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Identifying and changing aspects of behaviour contributing to difficulties experienced in mainstream school.
  • Ensuring that all pupilss with different additional needs are provided for with access to SEND support and bespoke interventions which include mentoring and counselling.  Supporting the school and parents with the smooth transition back to mainstream school so that the student is able to sustain and maintain their place.

We expect excellent attendance, high standards and mutual respect for all members of the Activate community, with care and concern for others central to the work that we do. Parents and carers are very important to us and we need and value your support too.

We look forward to working with you and your child, supporting their progress and personal development in order for them to be successful back in their mainstream school
