Holway Centre

About our centre


The Holway Centre is our main student base. All Key Stage 4 students who are permanently excluded, or attending TDPC on partnership programmes, are based at Holway.  


Staff at the Holway Centre work with pupils in the centre, in an outreach capacity and online. 

Students are taught in classrooms in small groups by skilled staff.  Our curriculum consists of academic and vocational subjects, outdoor education and Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).  Running through all of this is a focus on Social, Emotional and Mental Health. 


Our Partnership team and our Outreach & Virtual Learning team are also based at Holway.


The Holway centre has undergone a full refurbishment which is a really exciting development for us.  Alongside fully resourced classrooms we have a new science laboratory, teaching kitchen and two vocational teaching workshops.  We are also developing the outside space.
