Our bespoke provision. focused on KS3 & KS4 has been designed to offer a positive solution to learning and engagement issues that some students may face in mainstream environments. We do this through a combination of physical activity practice and classroom learning.
Our team of experienced tutors, activity providers, and our unique environment is designed to contribute to a more positive outlook on learning and how behavioural changes will benefit both in-school experiences and after-school life, whether that be moving into the workforce or further education. There is a large focus on pastoral support and social and emotional well-being. Our building is unique as it is a fully working social enterprise, utilising staff that are part of worldwide communities, run their own companies, and serve other roles in the main NovaCity enterprise. This real-world experience opens up many opportunities for learning and social interaction.
In recent years, students on our provision have stayed on to volunteer after their placement ended and have continued to be engaged in the physical activities on offer providing a long-lasting impact.
