Inspiration icollege is located at Foxglove Way, Thatcham RG18 4DH and provides short term education placements for KS1 & KS2 learners in West Berkshire who are struggling to access a mainstream provision. This includes learners who are looking for reintegration back to mainstream schooling following a permanent exclusion and those who have received an extended fixed term exclusion. Inspiration icollege also offers an in-reach service to mainstream schools providing reactive provision to improve mainstream engagement or to support learners with Special Educational Needs transition to a specialist school placement.
Inspiration icollege is a small school with two classrooms, a sensory room and an outdoor play area, we only cater for 12 learners at a time, and this ensures that their learning needs are met quickly and effectively. All staff members are highly experienced and are fully committed to our objective of supporting all learners to enjoy learning.
We provide bespoke packages, including core subjects and a wide variety of engaging alternative educational opportunities, to meet individual learner needs. Our learners will benefit from a fully differentiated curriculum that supports their academic, behavioural, social and emotional development. We primarily focus upon a learner’s well-being and the skills of learning. To support us with this we have a pastoral manager, an emotional literacy support assistant and offer all of our learners the opportunity to work with the Emotional Health Academy. Our aim is to help learners be better equipped to move on and to ultimately succeed in a school setting appropriate to their needs.
