REACH Alternative Education

REACH is one of Somerset’s leading providers of alternative education placements. Our professional and long-standing team are able to respond to needs by delivering one-to-one and small group provision.

We currently provide provision for over 150 students across the area and have built an excellent reputation for successful placements through partnership working.

Reach is known for being an outward facing provision. We pride in working outside of buildings, allowing young people to safely explore their community, the South West and learn relevant practical life skills. Our leadership team face outwards into schools and are able to work multiagency to ensure strong partnerships and support to schools. Our Safeguarding Lead team of 4 ensure that safeguarding, attendance and progress are at the core of all the work we do. The duty desk provides a single point of access for families, schools and agencies to get responsive communication and support during our open hours. Please explore our website, watch the videos, make contact and come and visit anytime! If you are a school, please read the key information for QA / Ofsted document at the bottom of this page.
