Young people often show a range of unhelpful behaviours to hide their own vulnerability.  At The Forge we seek to offer schools, families and pupils a range of options to help make rapid progress, encourage re-engagement and allow change from within.

Our Background

The Forge was established in 2010 and is an amalgamation of two Worcestershire PRU’s, Holyoakesfield PRU a KS3 provision, and St Mary’s PRU a KS4 provision.

We have strong links with our partners across Worcestershire and we now operate as one school with a dedicated team of caring professionals with expertise in engaging and transforming the lives of young people who are at risk of exclusion or have been excluded from mainstream schools.
