The Grove Academy

he Grove Academy became an academy in September 2013 and is continuing its excellent work as an AP Pupil Referral Unit providing for the needs of vulnerable and disengaged students from the wider Harrogate area.

Through the local Behaviour Collaborative we take referrals from ten local schools, providing short term placements for those students at risk of permanent exclusion; educating those students who have been permanently excluded and managing their transition to a new school and providing statutory education for those students unable to attend school for medical reasons. The vast majority of students reintegrate back into their mainstream school, or move on to a new mainstream or special school.

This was recognised by OfSTED during our most recent inspection in June 2015, which judged the academy to be soundly outstanding.
