A word from our Headteacher…

Welcome to our website and I hope it gives you an insight into the exciting plans for REACH School.

I write this at the beginning of a new month, a new term, a new academic year and, yes – as we celebrate the opening of the new REACH school!

We welcome to the existing team 3 new members of staff, Esam Alyanai, Katie Wyatt and Mark Ludditt and between them they will deliver the Maths, English, Art and Science curriculum to our pupils.

Sometimes it’s hard to maintain the good intentions of a ‘new start’ but we will support all our pupils to enable them to maximise the opportunities they are given here with us, and, if necessary, each week and even each new day can mean the chance to start again!

Thank you for your interest in REACH School.
I hope you are as excited as I am about the difference we are going to make to the lives of the young people who will join us.

In essence, REACH School will give the opportunity of a new beginning for the most vulnerable learners in our community.

Here’s to new starts… however many times we need to offer them or take advantage of them!

Miss Nicola Redhead Headteacher

There is a lot to be excited about at REACH this term. Some things will already feel new but we will be watching with great interest as the contractors get our new building ready for us to move into in January! It will be amazing to be able to be in ‘our own place’ and to have all the benefits the new environment will bring. Watch this space for updates on the progress being made, including photographic evidence! REACH School is very much based on a positive ethos, with both staff and students being encouraged to believe that every challenge is an opportunity. Challenging days ahead for everyone involved as we prepare to open…. but, what an opportunity!

REACH School will offer a well-ordered environment and supportive ethos in which pupils are safe, stimulated, challenged and empowered to succeed.
To ensure this happens we will offer pupils a curriculum that is inclusive, accessible, purposeful and innovative, working with pupils to help them overcome any barriers to learning which they may have, thus ensuring that they have access to the most appropriate resources to meet their specific needs
