I am delighted to welcome you to the Catch22 PPP website, I hope it will give you an introduction to our school, aims and ethos. We are proud of our school, the young people and their achievements and we are confident that we will grow from strength to strength.
Our vision is to re-engage young people in education, giving them new experiences and developing a positive attitude towards learning and high academic achievement, building confidence and resilience and promoting emotional well-being. Our aim is to develop independence skills in our young people to ensure that we prepare them for the next stage of their life, often referred to as ‘preparation for adulthood’.
We believe education is a partnership between school, the young people and their families, as such, we encourage families to be actively involved in the life of the school and we will work hard to build trust by being transparent and honest in all that we do. I am lucky in that I have a staff team who are knowledgeable, dedicated and passionate about the important roles they play in the lives of the young people, and through a culture of ‘high expectation’ they want the very best for them!!
I am looking forward to my role of Headteacher, having previously been a Head of an Outstanding Independent Specialist school and a Service Manager for a London based Local Authority SEND Advisory Service. I have supported mainstream schools and alternative provisions to be inclusive of children and young people with varying levels of difficulties.
At Catch22 PPP we strive to provide a safe place by actively promoting individuality, difference and self-worth building resilient young adults.
Please take the time to find out more about what we do by viewing the different sections on our website. If you are a prospective parent/carer, please call the office and leave your details and myself or someone from the senior leadership team will contact you as soon as possible.
