BAILEY STREET ALTERNATIVE PROVISION ACADEMY

(Formerly The Hollies Pupil Referral Unit)

I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Staff and the School's Management Committee to welcome you to our school.

The school provides education for secondary aged pupils aged 11-16 years old. Our pupils come to us at various points during their secondary schooling due to them being permanently excluded or at risk of permanent exclusion. Regardless of prior circumstances we firmly believe that all pupils at the Hollies should be successful and we do everything possible to deliver this vision.

We are very proud of our school and pupils. We have high expectations we strive to provide the best education possible for our pupils: re-engaging them with learning, ensuring their special educational needs are identified and understood. We develop teaching and learning programmes which enable all of our pupils to be successful.

Our school staff team is an established, highly skilled team. All of the staff are hardworking, extremely dedicated and place the needs of the pupils at the heart of everything that they do. Our job is to help them get back on track, either through a return to regular schooling or by completing Year 11 with us, so that they emerge prepared to make a positive contribution into further education, employment or training and we have excellent links with the full range of post 16 providers.

We hope you find the website interesting and informative. If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Our school driver Ian has been busy delivering all of the weekly food parcels to our lovely pupils and their families! We'd love to know how you've got creative with yours, and what you've made!

Mrs Jackson loves chocolate spread and banana sandwiches.

Miss Morgan, helping to load up the school minibus for delivery!

Mrs Pinkney shared her recipe for a best ever cheese toastie.

TESTIMONIALS - FOOD PARCELS

'I wanted to thank everyone for the fantastic food parcel. It has helped me enormously and made a big difference to both myself and my child. I'd also like to thank you for your extra effort in getting it to us.'
