Moorbridge PRU and NTSSS work's to engage and sustain learning for vulnerable and challenging young people.

We work with our students to improve attainment, progress, behaviour, attendance, self-esteem and confidence whilst providing skills to support excellent learning, development as responsible members of the community; we have high expectations and contribute to the well-being and cohesion of the community we serve.

We believe that provision based on teaching young people how to achieve in core subjects, in managing personal behaviours and in developing employability skills is vital to success for all learners at Moorbridge PRU

We deliver Alternative Provision which recognizes that students are all individuals with different strengths and weaknesses, acknowledging that mainstream education is not for everyone

We provide our students with a chance to engage in education whilst preparing to reintegrate back into a mainstream school place; students may find alternative placements supported by Moorbridge , North Tyneside School Support Team, North Tyneside SARS Team and the North Tyneside Fair Access Process or develop a range of skills to prepare them for employment, apprenticeship or other study routes beyond 16.


We offer the full range of curriculum, teaching and learning and pastoral support which you would expect to see in the best mainstream Middle, High and secondary schools and academies in North Tyneside and Nationally.

We believe passionately that children and young people who, for whatever reason, are unable to attend mainstream schools/academies or are not succeeding in them, deserve as good an education as their peers at these schools/academies.


Children and young people who may be facing particular challenges and difficulties in their lives deserve the highest level of additional support to help them overcome these.


The highest expectations, an inclusive curriculum, a commitment to Safeguarding and a determination to cultivate success for every pupil are at the heart of everything we do.


We constantly evaluate and analyse practice to develop innovative and quality driven approaches to teaching and learning. We provide children and young people with compassion and challenge within a strong, stable and structured environment. We ensure every pupil is able to attain age related educational standards, approved qualifications and secure progression. We provide personalised learning which clearly identifies academic and personal goals and  targets and ensures the attainment of these. We also have robust Governance through our Management Committee/Governors to guarantee that the highest standards of leadership and management and teaching, learning and pastoral care are maintained and developed. We have achieved GOOD in our recent OFSTED with many outstanding features.

Students are kept on the roll of their mainstream school and, under the arrangement made under the Education Act 2013, will usually be dual registered.

Good weekly communication between the schools, parents and Centre is encouraged. Parents can telephone or visit the Centre at any time to discuss the problems their child may be experiencing.  Schools have access to CPOMS so they are able to access live data about their pupils at any point. Each mainstream school has a named “Moorbridge Advocate” who is the key point of contact. Advocates attend strategic meetings every half term.
