School is the best place to learn for the majority of young people, however Alternative Provision (education out of school) can be more appropriate for some.

SACC offers a real alternative to young people who find themselves outside of mainstream school. Our Study Programme for 14 – 16 year olds enable pupils to become successful in any classroom or wider social environment by providing a personalised learning experience that focuses on the development of key skills.
