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

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

The Hub offers an holistic wraparound service in a safe and nurturing all female environment.  We  prides 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 vocational curriculum, focusing on building essential life skills and resilience.

The curriculum is based on creative and vocational ways of learning in a much smaller learning environment. The curriculum offer includes:  Prince’s Trust “Achieve Programme”, which focuses on transferable life skills; ASDAN short courses, which includes  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 the next phase of their life, whether it be an apprenticeship, college or work.

“I have made amazing friends and have had loving, caring teachers there for me. I am so happy with how much I have improved, my behaviour, my attitude, and my attitude towards learning. I have loved every minute of it!”
