Highway Hope Supplementary School

The Highway Hope educational scheme was set up to encourage children’s self-esteem and self-worth, which we believe is required to excel in society. We provide opportunities for every child to acquire knowledge and skills; both social and academic. We raise their standards of education by focusing on the core subjects of Mathematics, English and Science. We also educate our children using extra-curricular activities such as talks and presentations about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and smoking. We also introduce our children to positive role models by inviting professional guest speakers who also help with educational counselling. Our successes have come in the form of our children enjoying increased attainment levels at their (mainstream) schools. We also work closely with their parents who have also gained a better understanding of the UK educational system.

GIFT Academy Supplementary School

GIFT Academy was set up to increase the educational achievements of young people particularly boys. The service strives to engage young people with education as a way of improving their educational attainments, self-esteem, confidence and personal development. The aim is also to inspire and encourage our young people to persist in achieving a solid educational foundation and provide them with valuable insight into the importance of working hard to achieve their goals.  We provide a range of services to students from age 8 to 16 years old, which includes:

  • Saturday School/After school Learning Support
  • Mentoring- positive role models
  • Family mediation service

We focus on the core National Curriculum subjects, in English, Maths and Sciences preparing children to achieve better grades, encouraging and raising aspirations and lifelong learning.

The sessions also consist of personal development workshops, educational trips, heritage and cultural workshops.  Alongside the support to the core curriculum subjects, we work with parents to get involved with the learning and teaching. We are developing partnerships with local schools to facilitate parental support to manage conflicts, provide advocacy support and to participate with helping their children to complete their homework and monitor their progress.

Strategies To Elevate People (STEP) Supplementary School

STEP was created in 1986. It was created because of the underachievement of young people in the school system, which was its sole purpose and still is.

Our main aims are to raise educational attainment of young people to positively improve their life chances. We also want to raise their confidence and self-esteem in education ensuring success and sustainability in the future. We do this through a supplementary education service that provides support with core subjects such as maths, English, ICT, science, alongside personal development workshops and confidence building exercises.

STEP runs activities and discussion groups surrounding healthy eating, healthy lifestyle, exercise and sports. These activities usually consist of a series of workshops and educational trips celebrating the above through science, physical activities, visits to shops, cooking, maths, counting calories and food budgeting.

The youngsters have also had the opportunity to visit science museums and chocolate factories where they learned about their history, theatre/cinema and chocolate! We also deliver specialist workshops about the cultural heritage of our children. Founder Louise Dunn is also one of the MEaP Directors.
