Welcome to Springwell Harrogate

We are a secondary Alternative Provision Academy that provides full and part-time education and support for children and young people who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to access mainstream education.

Inclusion is at the heart of everything that we do and we have a renowned reputation for working positively and purposefully with young people and their families to support them through periods of difficulty and challenge. Our motto, ‘A Chance to Succeed’ is extremely important to us: our expectations of all who work here, staff and students, are extremely high!

Our goal is to provide all children and young people with an appropriate and carefully considered range of opportunities. This enables them to gain personal fulfilment through learning by developing positive self-esteem and helps them unlock their academic potential. By taking into account the wider social and emotional needs of each individual, all staff work exceptionally hard to transform students’ motivation and develop the whole child spiritually, emotionally, morally, socially and intellectually. Much of our work involves liaison with a wide range of other agencies in order to ensure that our youngsters, and their families, are appropriately supported. We have excellent working relationships with our mainstream schools and support the reintegration of learners into full time education into school, further education or employment.
