The Green Room School

The Green Room School is for young people who can no longer access mainstream education. Using a combination of therapeutic, academic, creative and physical education, the aim is to significantly change the lives of our pupils and their families, to start a path to a better life.

Green Room College

The Green Room College (GRC) provides all pupils with opportunities so they can move on to further education, employment or their own business ventures. The Sixth Form and WINGS programme is a much needed alternative for pupils who want to prepare further, or may not be ready or not fully equipped yet to thrive in a college or school sixth form environment.
