Welcome to South Somerset Partnership School
South Somerset Partnership School (SSPS) provides education for young people across South Somerset who are unable to access their mainstream school. This may be for social and emotional reasons, for medical or mental health reasons, or because they have been Permanently Excluded. We strive to ensure our students are not disadvantaged, and work tirelessly to ensure that their academic outcomes and long-term life chances are not unduly affected by attending a PRU for part of their education.
Our vision remains strong; in the words of the poet Maya Angelou:
‘My mission is not that you survive, but that you thrive with passion, compassion, humour and style’
Our most recent Ofsted was in May 2018, the report states:
“You make sure that expectations are high. Lessons are about learning and trying your best. The learning environment is filled with positive prompts and messages to pupils.”
“You expect learning to be interesting, relevant and fun. As a result, pupils learn to apply their skills while doing practical activities that they enjoy.”
This demonstrates our absolute commitment to ensuring all our pupils are able to access a high-quality education, regardless of what has gone before.
