The Young Women’s Hub is an independent school with a charitable status and was established in 2017. The school is based in Catford and located in the London Borough of Lewisham.

The school provides full-time, alternative education for students with social, emotional, mental health needs, SEN, attachment difficulties and/or additional complex needs.

The Hub offers an holistic wraparound service in a safe and nurturing environment. We pride ourselves on our high level of pastoral care and safeguarding expertise, for the most vulnerable young women. We combine this with high-quality teaching, small classes, and with a broad, balanced cross curriculum, we can ensure that all our student’s individual learning needs are met.

All students are offered individual academic and mentoring support, and our  curriculum is based on creative ways of learning. The curriculum offer includes  Prince’s Trust “Achieve Programme”, which focusses on transferable life skills, ASDAN short courses, including humanities and science, and functional skills in English and maths.

Our key aim is to understand and address the issues each individual student is facing. Our end goal is for students to acquire the life skills and maturity needed to be successful in their next phase of transition, whether it be an apprenticeship, college or work. This powerful knowledge is also key for students to be able to navigate through life despite their needs, so they can positively function in society as an adult.
