Springboard Secondary has facilities to teach small groups of young people in Key Stages 3 and 4 and Post 16-18( in execptional circumstances). Our programmes are designed to benefit pupils with Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, including Attention Deficit Disorders and Asperger’s Syndrome. Alternative education packages are tailored to the needs of individual pupils and will be linked to the National Curriculum when appropriate. The individualised curriculum enables a smooth transition to mainstream or special schooling, further education or employment.

Springboard Secondary has a proven history of responding successfully to the needs of pupils, parents and Local Authorities, providing for current needs and planning positively for the future.

Springboard Secondary is confidently used and recognised as a valuable and trustworthy provision by a range of education and social service departments, including West Sussex and Brighton and Hove. We have close working relationships with the Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service, MIND, The Autistic Society, Connexions, Time Out Fostering and Youth Offending Teams.
