Our Schools

Edison Young People’s schools meet the needs of children and young people who find it difficult to achieve in mainstream education, where it is often not possible to meet their emotional and developmental needs.

The ethos of our schools is about offering a specialist environment that identifies with the differences, challenges and aspirations of the children and young people referred to our schools. We believe that no child or young person should fail as a direct result of their past experiences or complex histories. We are committed to helping them overcome adversity, so that they can be successful in their current and future lives. High levels of individual teaching and support are central to our schools achieving these aims, so that individual attention for each pupil will support them with their own unique needs.

Edison Pace School is an independent SEND school. The 5-million-pound refurbished secondary school based in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent is a small calm school offering places to 60 young people aged between 11 years old and 16 years old.
