Who Are We?

Contact Us


This service has been in operation for a number of years and has been DFES registered since July 2005. It is a co-educational, day provision, catering for the secondary education phase range.


Students are those who present challenging behaviour, often with Statements of Special Needs for emotional, behavioural and social difficulties.


The aim of Learn 4 Life is to ensure that students are able to access full time educational provision. This aim is achieved by promoting an ethos of unconditional acceptance and equipping students with the skills to gain control in their lives by developing a sense of self-esteem and community inclusion.


Students are primarily looked after children, placed at Care Afloat Limited, Registered Children's Homes, and Local Authority Learn 4 Life referrals.
