They operate an Integrated Schools Services model, which includes Integration services and Community Outreach services. Each tutorial group has a teaching team of three (Teacher, HLTA and TA) supported by specialist teachers, a Pupil Facilitator and the Deputy Head and Head Teacher.

The primary activity of the school is the provision of specialist education services to young people with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs - previously known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD) - and highly focused education services for pupils with an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).

As a 1:1 Teaching Assistant you will work with the most disaffected, challenging pupils the South East. Pupils have often been excluded from numerous schools and have been out of full-time education for an average of 18 months before they arrive at this school. The school has not permanently excluded a single pupil in more than six years as they are aware of the damage that further exclusion causes.

The school offers positive outcomes to young people of school age who have disengaged, or are at the point of disengaging with education. Many of these pupils are known to the criminal justice system and a significant percentage of the pupils are looked after or children in need. Most have been excluded from at least one school.
Despite these challenge the school and their 1:1 Teaching Assistants support pupils in achieving a wide range of accredited outcomes in examinations and other courses.

There is a sense of pride, purpose and achievement. Importantly, more than 80% of the pupils are in education, training or employment six months after leaving.
