Kaleidoscope provides an emotionally secure setting in a calm and structured environment. Pupils work in small groups of no more than 6 children, developing life skills that will enable them to be more successful in their classes and out of school. This is especially designed for key stage 3 students.

Beyond is a listening service providing both support and guidance for students.
The team aim to provide a friendly, approachable and confidential service. We will listen openly and empathetically to any problems that a child or parent (regarding their child) may have.
We work closely alongside other student services such as welfare, SEN, the Learning Project and Kaleidoscope; this ensures that the student has the appropriate support network around them. This is generally targeted at older students.

As part of our commitment to support and guide students to take responsibility for their learning and their wellbeing while in school, we have developed a 6 week learning development initiative. The focus is primarily to improve self-confidence, social skills and behaviour thereby promoting engagement in mainstream learning and resilience.
