Welcome to LPW!
We are a small alternative learning provider based in the heart of Bristol, serving communities across the city. The majority of our students join us from mainstream settings where they were at risk of permanent exclusion. Our aim is to re-engage them with education and to support them to achieve positive outcomes and transition successfully into post 16 placements.
We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming, stable and friendly environment that supports students to re-engage with education and build strong relationships with a supportive team of trusted staff.
We recognise the traditional school curriculum does not suit many of our learners and that this may have contributed to their difficulties in previous settings. We aim to combine academic success with valuable real-life experiences and vocational learning, and partner with providers across the city to offer a wide range of courses and opportunities.
Our school is trauma and attachment aware and this approach informs how we work with the young people that attend our setting. We recognise the importance of developing trusted relationships between students and staff and providing stability that supports success.
