We are an independent school that helps young people aged 11-16 who are at crisis in their educational experience. As a reflection of our underpinning Christian ethos our practice is to uphold and encourage respect, care, love, acceptance and belonging among our staff and pupils.
TLG’s programmes are designed to help individuals grow in confidence, raise their aspirations and reach their full potential - providing building blocks for a better life. We seek to engage young people on pathways to learning with accredited outcomes, that facilitate reintegration back into school, or progression on to further education or employment with training.
I grew up in a lot of neglect, poverty, crime and violence. I had a massive temper and mental health issues which got me into a lot of trouble with the police. I was kicked out of my house and forced to sleep on peoples couches and floors for years.
I was later referred to the youth offending team for 5 counts of burglary and was introduced to TLG by YOT after being out of education for 7 years.
At first I didn't want to go but I found out it's not like a normal school, it's miles better. After only 3 months I'm a lot happier and more confident, my temper is getting better with help from Danny, Susie and Beth. I've caught up and sat GCSE's and am now going on to sixth form. If there was anyone I know that can't be at/kicked out of school I would recommend TLG in a heartbeat.
