Education Links is an alternative education provider for children mainly drawn from the London Borough of Newham, where we are a preferred provider of alternative education. Young people are referred to us because they are not succeeding in mainstream school. Our aim is to work with them in such a way as to engage them in the process of learning, catering for their emotional, intellectual and social needs. They may have been excluded, or are at risk of exclusion, are transferring school through a managed move, or have been given a fixed term exclusion. We have been rated ‘a Good school’ by Ofsted.
It is our aim that the young people who learn at Community Links Academy Trust receive the national curriculum delivered in a way to ensure success for everyone, tailored for the individual, ensuring that every child gains skills and knowledge and encourage them to continue on to further education or on to apprenticeship schemes where they can go on to employment.
