Alternative Education at Pollyteach

At Pollyteach, we create a fun and safe alternative learning environment for young people aged 8-16 with a range of emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. Learners aged 16+ with an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP) can also access our services. 

We engage with our learners to build their self-esteem, confidence and social skills before developing a bespoke education programme to support their interests and goals.  

Since starting in 2014, we have grown to become a leading Alternative Provider and now operate over 4 different locations in the region. We became part of the 鶹ýӳ Group in 2020, meaning our learners can now benefit from more specialist facilities and therapies.

Complex health issues kept Kerry out of school since year 7.  She was referred to Pollyteach in year 10 where she received flexible and supportive one-to-one teaching. She went on to achieve 8 GCSEs, which was a huge achievement.
