Alternative education in primary and secondary schools

Alternative full-time and part-time education for young people displaying a wide range of complex barriers to education, including those who are excluded or at risk of exclusion and those with social, emotional and mental health needs or special educational needs.

Catch22 provides young people aged 4 to 18-years-old with alternative education in order for them to progress and succeed in sustained education or employment. We do this through high quality teaching and learning based on effective relationships that enable the achievement of life skills and meaningful qualifications.


Multi Academies Trust

The Catch22 Multi Academies Trust is an approved Academy Sponsor which focuses on learners who can benefit from small, supportive alternative education centres.

Academy sponsorship is about using partnerships to provide specific expertise and skills to enhance standards. Catch22, with our existing wide experience of alternative education provision, brings infrastructure support, improvement to pastoral provision and greater focus on preparing young people for the world of work. We look to increase access to one-to-one and mentoring opportunities through a mixture of off-site and extra curricular events in order to improve the self-esteem and self-confidence of learners. We also implement speech and language development programmes.

We offer a full national curriculum as well as vocational subjects and have high aspirations for all learners, with an expectation that all secondary learners will work toward achieving at least 5 GCSEs.

Catch22 include

Catch22 include provides full-time alternative education to primary and secondary young people aged 4 to 16-years-old in England and Wales with an emphasis on transition and re-engagement back into mainstream education or employment.

We support vulnerable young people with challenging behaviours to realise their full potential, achieve academic and vocational targets, and progress into education, training and employment.

Include independent schools are accredited with the national matrix quality standard for high quality advice and guidance services which is promoted by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills. The schools offer a range of tailored support programmes targeted at:

  • young people who fall into high risk groups in all key stages
  • those who are excluded or at risk of exclusion from mainstream schools or Pupil Referral Units (PRUs)
  • those with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) or special educational needs (SEN).
