Kickstart Academy is a Key Stage 4 Secondary School (PRU) based at Tan Bank. We provide learning programmes for 48 pupils who are referred from within the Telford and Wrekin area.

This referral takes place through the well-established Fair Access Process (FAP), due to behaviour concerns or being at risk of permanent exclusion or those that are permanently excluded from school.

We pride ourselves in supporting learners with a wide range of difficulties, with the intention of them returning to mainstream education. Where this is not viable, students remain with ourselves and we look to achieve the best possible outcomes for our young people.

Our ethos at Kickstart Academy is for students to learn and develop as a young person in the most positive way possible, we pride ourselves on giving students the opportunity to better themselves, please see the curriculum statement to the right.
