Welcome to Christchurch Learning Centre

Employability Day 2019

Employability day for our year 11s was held at the Captain’s Club Hotel again this year and our local employers were impressed with the professionalism of our students. It was a great opportunity for some networking and for practicing those all important job interview skills.

Inter Learning Centre Football Tournament 2019 *Cancelled* 

Unfortunately we had to cancel this year’s tournament due to the fact that Y9s are legally not allowed to take part. Therefore we do not have enough players for our team.

All policies are currently being reviewed and updated for the BCP Council Merge

Ethos and shared vision

‘To provide an outstanding education for all young people requiring alternative provision’

Christchurch Learning Centre is one of five Learning Centres across Dorset who provide education for those pupils unable to sustain a full-time place in mainstream school.  Pupils are referred for additional support via a number of professionals including the Dorset Exclusions Officer, Health Professionals & CAMHS, Dorset LAC Team and the Dorset SEN Team.

Provision is available from two sites; our main site, Christchurch Learning Centre enables us to provide for those pupils demonstrating behavioural challenges. Our second site, The Lighthouse Centre enables us to provide for those pupils demonstrating social, emotional, mental health challenges and SEN. This site is usually referred to by Health and SEN Professionals for targeted or transitional work.
