About the Academy

As the new Head of Centre I am proud to welcome you to Springwell Harrogate!

Our school is based in Harrogate, and a is new member of the Wellspring Academy trust!

We aim to prevent our young people being permanently excluded from mainstream schools. We do this by providing short term intervention focused placements which aim to allow a young person to re-engage and return to their mainstream education.

At Springwell Harrogate we believe that our curriculum should comprise not only of learning experiences, but of life experiences. We plan our curriculum to challenge young people in all aspects. We teach using both the national curriculum and NURTURE curriculum, pinning everything we do to a love and exploration of the outdoors and nature.

We aim to provide a therapeutic, nurturing environment by recreating a family environment. Our intention is to identify the needs of each young person and tailor an individual learning and pastoral intervention plan.

Mr Alex Bentley – Head of Centre
