An alternative approach to education
What is The Alternative School?

Now in our fourth year, The Alternative School (known as TAS) was set up to offer a fun, challenging yet relaxed alternative education programme for young people.

We are different because we are able to offer a totally unique and \ufb02exible programme that is tailored around the speci\ufb01c needs of each individual young person.

Referrals come from a variety of sources including Parents, Schools, Young People\u2019s Service, PRU\u2019s, Police, Youth Offending Team, Social Services, Family Support and often self referral after hearing positive feedback from friends or relatives that have already attended TAS.

Each young person that attends TAS Full or Part-Time will design their own timetable, decide which quali\ufb01cations they would like to work towards, what new activities they would like to try and will set their own goals for the forthcoming year. The timetable will vary greatly for each young person and will include a high percentage of one-to-one work, team projects and activities and small more formal taught workshops all aimed at building individual con\ufb01dence, self esteem, team working and important social skills.

At TAS we take a more holistic approach to learning and support both the individual and educational needs of young people, helping them to overcome a wide range of barriers and develop over a period of time into well rounded young adults.
