Rivers Education Support Centre

Rivers Education Support Centre provides educational programmes to support pupils who are at serious risk of permanent exclusion or who have been permanently excluded from their mainstream school.

The centre’s vision is to inspire and enable pupils to

  • Become confident, independent and successful young people
  • Excel in Learning
  • Engage positively with the community
  • Be ambitious for their futures.

At our KS3 the focus of centre work is to re-engage the pupils with their learning and reintegrate them into a mainstream school setting. The outreach team works closely with all primary and secondary schools in supporting pupils who are experiencing emotional, social, behaviour challenges that are impacting on their school success.


At our KS4 pupils are provided with an alternative provision where it is acknowledged that a mainstream setting is not meeting their needs. Pupils are offered a wide variety of opportunities for accreditation, including GCSE courses, OCR, City and Guilds, BTEC. Rivers success is built upon strong partnerships with schools and other services and most importantly, with young people and their parents and carers
