Welcome to The Reach Alternative Provision Academy

Reach Academy was established to give the students in Stoke-On-Trent the very best in Alternative Provision. Many of our students have found it difficult in mainstream schools but develop a new attitude towards education here.

We thrive off developing positive traits in young people around resilience and ambition and believe every young person has a right to access outstanding education in order to develop this. We want every student to progress to further education at 16 or pursue their career of choice.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and a therapeutic enrichment programme focusing on individual interests and skills and provide option choices which engage, enrich and encourage our students to achieve excellence.

Dear Parent /Carer
As we approach the end of term on Friday, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support over the last year. The students have definitely risen to the challenges and we have seen some real progress in terms of removing and reducing barriers to learning.

We finish on Friday at 12pm and all students will be given lunch before they leave. Friday will also be a non-school uniform day.

We return on the 4th September 2019 at 9.00am. Please make sure students are wearing their Reach Academy t-shirts AND Reach Academy jumpers and arrive promptly for 9am for form time.

The minibus won’t be in operation during September, therefore the students who have been coming from the east of the city, will need to make their own way in until further notice.

Once again, thank you for your support. I have met a lot of parents/ carers over this last year and you have worked with us brilliantly.

Have a restful Summer and we look forward to welcoming you back in September.

Yours Faithfully

Paula Rippingham-Smith
