Voice Of The Excluded Student

Our Ethos

At Rise Academy, we aspire to be an inspirational Centre of Excellence, where even the most troubled young people can re-engage with learning, and develop the skills and attitude to life that will enable them to fulfill their potential and contribute to society.

We are experts in inspiring young people to re-engage with learning and rediscover their direction. Our years of success are born out of our proven approach and our profound belief in the positive potential of all young people.

With 100% post-16 progression, home support that is second to none and a one-to-one tuition for pupil-premium students, we lead the way in transforming young people with problems into young people with prospects.

Rising Stars!
