Our School

We provide a fresh start for young people who are disengaged in mainstream education. We seek to re-engage students and provide them with a small, nurturing but academically rigorous environment where young people can get back on track with their learning.

With an approach based on high expectations, academic rigor and a focus on addressing individual needs, we seek to help pupils re-discover their love of learning and get themselves back on track.

We are a warm, supportive and inclusive community welcoming pupils of all backgrounds and abilities.  Whilst every pupil has their own story of why they have come to us, at New Dawn every pupil starts with a clean slate and our focus is solely on what they do next.  We seek to re-build their confidence and resilience and give them the tools they need to embark on the next chapter of their lives.
