Prospect School

Academy Secondary & Sixth Form and The Bridge Resource Unit

A resource for Statemented pupils with Moderate Learning difficulties within a Secondary School.

The Bridge is a Local Education Authority funded resource base that opened in September 1999 as a result of a local initiative to improve opportunities for inclusion in the Reading area.

Students who attend the resource are referred by the LEA and form part of the School’s overall intake, although they are not necessarily from the local catchment area.

All the students in the resource are statemented for moderate learning difficulties and have a range of additional problems, which would make them particularly vulnerable in a full time mainstream environment. The Bridge has a maximum of 30 places in Key Stages 3 and 4.

Prospect School has published their Local Offer providing information on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
