Tuition service

The Beacon Centre is part of the St Helens Alternative Provision Service.  It is an integrated Service which, since 2004, incorporates a Tuition Service base for key stage 3 & 4 and an outreach tuition service for all key stages.  Teachers utilise a number of settings according to students’ learning needs, which are varied and complex.  Within the base there are a significant number of students with diagnosed anxiety disorders, and medical conditions.

Students remain on their mainstream school roll as well as being dual-registered with Launchpad.  Whenever it is suitable, students are re-integrated into school.

The outreach service support a small number of pupils in the home or other setting as appropriate.
