We’re on a mission to create equitable communities that thrive from serving each other and our planet.
What we do
Our school is for young people aged 9-14 with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND), and their families, who've disengaged with or disappeared from the system and are unable to access suitable education. We build back young people's confidence so they can return to the best mainstream or SEND provision with a fit-for-purpose Education Health Care Plan.
We offer a cutting-edge, work-based SEND curriculum to develop work-ready social entrepreneurs
aged 19-25 within a ready-made community they will always belong to. Our students gain business experience in our coffee shops while developing their own social enterprises. We then provide pathways into apprenticeships, jobs, and funding for student businesses.
Our coaching and consultancy centres on vertical development; enhancing what is happening beneath the surface for each individual, and in turn improving the outcomes for a team as a whole too. We work with our clients to increase the capacity required to innovate and manage the ever changing, more complex world we live in.
Through placing our students in the heart of communities and by striving to be active agents of social change, we're working to shift perspectives and transform the often still underestimated social value of SEND. Committed to supporting the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, our work aims to be both socially and environmentally sustainable.
We encourage change in our existing systems to ensure that young people, regardless of their circumstances, aren’t left behind. We're full of ideas on how to support other education provisions, trusts, businesses, and corporate and civic organisations in their championing of the different abilities and unique skills among their people.
Our vision is to create an international network of schools, colleges and
co-operatives where every community member has personal fulfilment and discovers their societal purpose.
