You must be a member of the Chartered College of Teaching to book onto this webinar.

In this special webinar for members we will hear from Kerrie Henton FCCT (Principal, Stone Soup Academy) who will share the AP’s recipe for success in transforming the lives of young people excluded from mainstream education. Professor Dame Alison Peacock (Chief Executive, Chartered College of Teaching) will chair the session.

Stone Soup Academy were awarded Alternative Provision of the year (TES awards: 2020). Through partnerships with local businesses they have offered job experience to their students, with two students permanently employed and two offered apprenticeships as a result. Their success has led to remarkable student outcomes, with attendance above 80% (it’s at 62% for AP nationwide), 100% of all students achieved qualifications, 82% achieved GCSE English and Maths.

“We wanted to give our students a future so they might care more about the present – they might not get involved in crime and violence if they had something to lose – so we set about creating this future for our students.”
