PaYP believe that it is vital that the young people who attend our provision experience success, and are supported to move forward positively.


Our purpose is to provide the Educational and Development support young people need to achieve their potential.

We will enable and equip young people who are experiencing difficulties at mainstream school to stay in education. This will be done by consulting with Schools, other professionals, parents/carers and most importantly with young people themselves.

Where an alternative to school is required for an interim period, we will provide support and we will work to stop young people being further excluded from school.

Our priorities are to ensure PaYP provides a safe and secure environment that promotes young people’s’ sense of self worth.

Chief Executive’s welcome

Our schools mission is to provide an excellent education for all students who are unable to access mainstream education. At the heart of this education are the values of Care, Hard Work, Respect, Integrity and working Together to improve their chances in the wider community.

Our school is dedicated in providing opportunities for our young people to develop the knowledge, skills and beliefs which will enable them to flourish in adult life. With small class sizes we can work closely to encourage and empower them to make improvements to their education and self-esteem.

Every one of our students is an individual with unique talents and abilities. We aim to nurture the ambitions of every young person so that they may not only realise their academic potential but also respond with confidence and resilience to the challenges that life in the 21st century will provide.

What people say about us

I have seen my daughter develop from a moody teenager into a young woman who is keen to succeed and be independent.

Carer Comment

The small class sizes really help, my son gets the attention he needs - he seems so much happier.

Parent Comment

Why wasn't this around for me? It feels like someone understands what she's going through.

Parent Comment

The staff quickly became my family because they listened. I was able to talk to them and be sure they would help me when I had an issue, even if that was from outside school.

Student Comment

Working at PaYP gives me a chance to support students who otherwise might fall the cracks of mainstream education. Working here gives me the best type of challenge.
