About Ethos College

Ethos College is based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire and is a part of the Ethos Academy Trust. Ethos College provides long-term full-time education to Key Stage 4 pupils (ages 14 to 16) with wide ranging Social, Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs. From our school, we also provide one to one teaching for a number of pupils across Key Stages 1 to 4 who are referred with medical needs or those whose needs are more complex.

We are a well-established Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) with a long-standing reputation for achieving outstanding outcomes with vulnerable pupils. Our nurture-based philosophy underpins our practice. At Ethos College we provide a caring, stimulating, safe and welcoming environment where learning is enjoyable, and teaching is personalised to the needs and interests of individuals. Students are supported to fulfil their academic potential whilst developing the confidence and skills required to succeed in post-16 education, employment or training.

We recognise that children and young people may present themselves in a variety of ways. These may include becoming withdrawn or isolated from their friends and studies through to displaying challenging, disruptive or disturbing behaviours. For many young people these behaviours may reflect underlying mental health needs.

Our outstanding staff team are skilled at working with young people with needs across the SEMH range. In partnership with parents, carers and other professionals, we take a holistic approach to ensuring a young person’s needs are identified and met throughout their journey at Ethos College, preparing them for the next stage of their lives.

At Ethos College, you will find strong, hardworking and dedicated members of staff. We believe in investing in our staff team and all staff have the opportunity to access high quality internal and external professional development. Working at Ethos College is extremely rewarding; making a difference to vulnerable young people across the local authority as part of a wider staff team and knowing that the work you have done has made an impact on a young person’s education and life chances.
