Rowhill School is a short stay provision that works with pupils who are permanently excluded, at risk of permanent exclusion or cannot attend mainstream for medical reasons. We offer a ‘mini mainstream’ model of provision where pupils are provided with rich opportunities within the curriculum to access a mainstream pathway after Rowhill School. We focus on academic subjects as well as personal development, therefore providing cultural capital to all cohorts.

“Rowhill is a vibrant and purposeful place to learn. Pupils are smartly presented in their uniform and focused in lessons. Pupils who are highly vulnerable make strong progress in their personal development.” (OFSTED March 2018)

"Since joining the Rowhill Team in January 2019, I have been able to utilise my skills both from my mainstream experience as well as my involvement with outside agencies. Rowhill consists of a unique set of staff working effectively together to ensure the highest standards are delivered to all our pupils and I have developed so many other skills mainstream could not offer. The senior leadership team have been instrumental in my personal development within my first leadership role and I look forward to continuing the journey". (AHT Quality of Education)

“The leadership experience that I have gained since joining Rowhill simply could not have been matched anywhere else. Rowhill School supports my belief that every child deserves another chance and our absolute best. Supporting all staff in helping our pupils make progress is a responsibility that I am proud to hold. For anyone who holds the pastoral element of education close to their heart, I would recommend Rowhill School.” (Deputy Headteacher)
