Welcome to princescommunityschool.com. After you read this, we hope you will lend your support to reaching our goal of adding to the current education provision in Southend-on-Sea. Having worked in mainstream education for over a decade, we feel that there are some children who would benefit from a much more ‘hands on’ approach to learning, with a wide range of activities and subjects available to them and a personalised curriculum. If you have or know of a child who has experienced any of the following issues within his/her current learning establishment, then the Prince’s Community School could be the ideal next step when moving into secondary school:
- Problems with behaviour
- Reading or writing difficulties
- Emotional or social barriers
- Simply ‘not fitting in’
We will offer a safe, warm environment that will take each child on his/her individual merit and develop them not just in their core subjects, but in a range of other areas that will tap into their talents and have them step out into the world as confident, mature, able young people. We will ensure that no child leaves the Prince’s Community School without going into either further education, training or employment. We will also guarantee that extremely high standards are set and adhered to with a zero tolerance ethos.
We are working alongside the ‘New Schools Network’ along with the Department For Education to open our school, which is technically classified as a ‘Free School’. For more information on this please see the links at the side of the page. If you have any questions we would be happy to hear from you.
Please feel free to look through the site to see what we can offer and gain an idea of all we are trying to achieve.
We hope you will take the time to fill in our online questionnaires to tell us what you think, and sign our petition. With your help we will be one step closer to opening a school for children who need something a little different to a larger mainstream setting.
