Rise Academy is a Pupil Referral Unit for pupils from Years 7 to 11.

This means that pupils come to us via a referral process, either from their previous school or directly from the Local Authority. 

We have 188 students on roll for the academic year 2018/19 (October 2018 census).

About Us

We are inspirational

  • By approaching students as individuals and understanding their perspectives, we find new and exciting ways to reactivate their engagement with learning. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution here.
  • By bringing passion, empathy and care to their unique cases, we enable our students to grow, move past their history and find their ambition.
We Believe in young people
  • We believe every young person has positive potential and that no student is a “lost cause”, whatever their history.
  • We believe that disengagement is a response to the situation, not the problem, and that given the right support, every student can make a positive contribution.
  • Our focus is on the good that we can do, not the harm that has been done.
We are committed
  • The young people who come to us have reached a crisis point. Poor choices, combined with a lack of opportunities and insufficient support or even abuse, have set them on a downward spiral.
  • We will break this cycle.
  • Our students need help to find a way forward and we are proud to guide  them. Whatever it takes, we will be there for them and keep challenging them to be their better self.
  • In the face of their anger and hurt, and society’s reproof, we will be strong for them and support them in finding a new direction.
We are expert professionals
  • We are experienced, we know what we are doing and can demonstrate that our methods and approach yield outstanding results.
  • By focusing on post-16 outcomes and approaching each student as a unique individual, we transform the disengaged young people who come to us into purposeful adults.
  • Our achievements are impressive and they are also replicable.
  • We aim to set the standard for excellence in our field and show others how to achieve similar results.

The Constellation Trust

Our Trust includes primary, secondary and an alternative provision school working together to provide the best learning opportunities for the pupils within our network of schools.

Each school serves its own community and has its own unique identity. Together we benefit from working in partnership, share good practice and have a joint central service support team.
