include PPP Freston Road
We are an Ofsted registered independent school based in West London that provides full-time, alternative, secondary education for young people, aged between 13 and 17. Often our young people present with additional to complex needs.
Catch22 include PPP West London provides education, mentoring, counselling, family support, accredited learning and work-related learning to some of the most vulnerable young people across London.
Education is delivered through individualised packages that meet very specific needs. Learners may have complex needs including social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH) and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). We also support learners who have just arrived in the country and those who are are hard to place due to multiple factors.
We offer a young person-centred, holistic approach to education, moving away from mainstream methods with which learners have had difficulties in the past. Through the provision of an alternative educational experience, one of our priorities is the behaviour of learners, our aim is to support pupils through use of a range of strategies enabling them to access the curriculum both socially and academically.
Learners can follow a GCSE pathway and are also given the opportunity to take Functional Skills, we are currently looking at ways in which we can broaden our curriculum as it is important that our students have access to a range of subjects to become well-rounded learners.
A key focus is on building trusting relationships that enable us to quickly identify the barriers to learning, support our learners to understand what they are and reach their full potential. The staff team aim to work closely with families to reinforce expectations as we firmly believe that working in partnership with parents and pupils is the most effective way to ensure sustainable change.
We have 45 places for learners in years 9, 10, 11 and 12 across two sites: Freston Road (Ladbroke Grove) and Phoenix Centre (Southall).
I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and state how much I am looking forward to working with all of you in partnership to help provide the best possible education, support and opportunities for all of the children at our school.
One of my core values is that all children deserve to have a positive experience of school where their needs are met, and they are helped to achieve their personal best in a safe and happy environment.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any comments or queries that you may have, and I will be happy to do my best to assist you.
