Alternative Provision

Alternative Provision is the cornerstone of education for students not best suited to mainstream education. Our specialist education services are improving the educational outcomes of children and young people every day.  Here at The Genesis Academy, we take time and care to understand their personal issues and barriers to education. As a result we have successfully developed evidence-based programmes specific for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Asperger Syndrome, Moderate or Severe Learning Difficulties and Disabilities, Social, Emotional Mental Health and Complex Needs.

Our Education Services educate and support students from the age of 5-18 across our 3 purpose built sites. Our education and transition pathways range from specialist Primary and Junior, Secondary and Further Education provision that help all young people. We follow the National Curriculum but also give opportunities for students to gain accredited qualifications in up to 20 subject areas either on a full time programme, part time programme or shared timetable.

Students can be educated at The Genesis Academy for 1-5 days per week in an environment that has smaller class sizes, 1-1 sessions and is all inclusive to provide the specialist care and support needed for all students to achieve their potential.


KS1 & KS2

Supporting Primary and Junior Schools and Local Authorities to deliver the National Curriculum to disengaged students, the Thrive Programme utilizes small group classes, 1-1 support, mentoring and family systemic therapy to help deal with core underlying issues and educational development. Our Curriculum also gives individuals and groups the opportunity to access our outdoor curriculum including; Gardening & Horticulture, Animal Care, Communication & Life Skills, Pottery, Indoor Climbing, Arts and Crafts and Drama.


With a key focus on re-integration back into mainstream schooling and providing a bespoke alternative education, our focused and methodical approach to academic upskilling and behaviour interventions supports and encourages students to develop the personal skills and characteristics to reintegrate successfully back into mainstream, whilst giving them the opportunity and insight into the vocational and career opportunities awaiting them long term.



Co-collaborating with councils, authorities, academies, multi-agency teams and trusts, The Genesis Academy provide bespoke education packages for learners interested in vocational, technical and academic subjects. With the flexibility of 20 different subjects, alongside our expertise in behaviour management and emotional development, our dedicated team effectively works with students to achieve educational success and maximize their long term prospects.


‘The overwhelming majority of pupils had positive comments to make about the provision, what they were learning, how well they were supported and the impact the provision was having on their behaviour, attitudes, attendance and outcomes at school.’
