ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Opening in Autumn 2020; The Lion Works School is an independent Special School that specialises in SEN academic excellence alongside vocational programmes for students with more practical skillsets.
Outcomes range from GCSE and A Level to Functional Skills and BTEC Level 1 certificates. We also work to support a full or part time transition to mainstream education settings.
PRINCIPLES OF OUR SCHOOL
MEET OUR STAFF
Mr Davis is the Headteacher and founder of The Classroom Group, which owns The Lion Works School. His unfulfilled dream is to be a shop-fitter, so instead he makes the exam centres and school look like really nice shops.
The Lion Works School has a full time engagement leader (think Chitty Chitty Bang Bang "child catcher") who supports a team to help students attend, engage and overcome their emotional barriers to learning.
Head of Engagement
Four engaging BTEC courses taught at KS4 and post-16; all shepherded and harangued by the lovely Mrs Ball. She likes; wallpaper, coffee and holidays. She also has an adorable dog that comes to school with her. This is one of the main reasons we like Mrs Ball.
