SEND Information

All students referred to The Sunbeck Centre have some degree of special educational need or disability (SEND).

The staff team endeavour to make provision for these individual needs accordingly.

The Sunbeck Centre is a fully inclusive learning environment which works towards developing successful individuals and supports students to achieve their potential - personally, socially, emotionally, academically and physically. As an alternative provision, we work with students in KS3 and KS4 from the Hambleton and Richmondshire districts of North Yorkshire who have been permanently excluded from mainstream education or require additional support and alternative provision in order to meet their needs and prevent permanent exclusion.​
