Alternative Education Provision

We are a specialist provider of alternative curriculum using the outdoors to develop resilience and facilitate growth in the lives of young people.

The multi-agency team at Alexander Adventures are skilled in working with students who find the classroom environment a challenge. We work daily with students educated outside of school and we have an excellent reputation for our work with looked after children and individuals with Autistic Spectrum and Anxiety Disorders. Alexander Adventures & associates works with LEA’s, PRU’s, Schools and parents to design and implement a range of interventions to support vulnerable young people across the region.

Our success is based on three core pillars:

  • Our outdoor locations are rich and varied, providing safe spaces and an environment that brings learning to life.
  • We aim to develop nurturing and supportive relationships with adults and young people 
  • We offer a range of activities – most of them practical and/or physical providing opportunities for our students to develop interests, open up to new adventures and foster hope for their future. 

The interventions we develop at Alexander Adventures are tailored to the needs of our students / referrals. We use a range of approaches including;

  • One to one mentoring – One to one support for individuals works very well and allows for issue-based work to be completed to aid in the journey into the classroom.
  • Small group work programmes – A longer term approach targeting Year 8 – 11 students who need that extra support to engage with mainstream school. This is particularly effective with young people who are lacking confidence & self-esteem and needing to build resilience to cope with modern day life challenges.
  • AQA awards plus a range of outdoor governing body awards including the John Muir Award are used to accredit young people’s achievement and portfolios can be built over time to help learners progress back into full time education, training or employment.

Residential Experiences

We can also offer residential accommodation from our amazing centre on the banks of the Tyne where overnight or longer residential experiences can be developed for specialist one to one placements through to multi day trips for groups up to 30 young people.

Our team has many years of experience developing bespoke programmes for individuals and groups. If you have a activity delivery requirement get in touch with us for a chat as we have access to an amazing range of inspiring activities and stunning venues and locations!
