Welcome to The Sunbeck Centre

Hello and a warm welcome to The Sunbeck Centre.

We provide education for young people aged between 11-16, predominantly from secondary schools in the Hambleton and Richmondshire area of North Yorkshire.

Our aim is to provide an environment and education that supports mainstream education and enables students to overcome barriers and challenges to learning.

Our experienced staff form positive relationships with students and their families. We deliver a core academic curriculum, vocational subjects, such as construction and catering, and look to enhance wellbeing through outdoor education, PE and Thrive. All of our staff use the Thrive approach in our setting to help students to understand how to build resilience and become better able to manage difficult emotions.

Our building is located in Northallerton in North Yorkshire. Students travel to us either on school transport, by taxi or on foot, depending on their home location and arrangements with their school.

Whilst we have been at our East Road site for ten years, we are very excited to start our new role as Alternative Provision from September 2020.

Our focus is preventing permanent exclusions from our partner schools and places at The Sunbeck Centre are agreed through the Area Inclusion Panel.

For further information about bespoke packages of education and what we offer, please get in touch with us.

I hope you find our new website useful and easy to use. Please let us know if you have any feedback that can help us to improve our service in any way.

We look forward to welcoming all of our students, new and established, to The Sunbeck Centre community.
