Youth Challenge Secondary - Academy Information

I have had the privilege of leading Youth Challenge since 2014. I have been a member of the Youth Challenge team since 2008 working in a variety of roles, all of which have enhanced my experience of working with young people with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Youth Challenge believes in fresh starts  and creating positive educational experiences for both our young people and parents. Re-engaging young people into education and preparing them for their next steps, be this back in mainstream school, special provision or post 16 remains at the forefront of what we do.

Through the delivery of personalised packages of learning we aim to meet the individual needs of our young people to ensure they have successful futures.

We pride ourselves on our creativity, commitment and our passion to help young people celebrate success to become the best they can be.
