'Welcome to our school'
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website.
Craven Pupil Referral Service provides education for students aged 11-16, who, for a variety of
reasons, are unable to access mainstream education. We work closely with all of the of the secondary schools in the Craven area but we also welcome students from other areas of North Yorkshire
and other local authorities too.
Everything that we do is based around our beliefs that all young people that access the centre should be
supported to have high aspirations, to thrive both personally and in their academic studies, and to succeed and be the best that they can be.
We are an inclusive service and see it as our role to create a safe, supportive environment where all
pupils learn, progress and have high aspirations for the next phase of their lives. We achieve this through establishing high expectations and by providing motivational teaching and
personalised care and support.
We offer a wide range of courses and opportunities through full-time and part-time placements and students
make excellent progress during their time with us, achieving a range of qualifications. Students are with us for varying amounts of time and the vast majority of those who are with us for Year
11 go on to college and training.
In addition to the qualifications that our students study, it is our aim to provide students with the
support to develop spiritually, socially, morally, emotionally and intellectually. Staff work hard to ensure that students needs are met, enabling them to leave us as healthy, confident young
No matter why a student has arrived with us, we are committed to creating the environment in which they
can be the best that they can be.
If you have any further questions or queries with regard to the support that we can provide, please do not
hesitate to contact us at the centre.
