Kings Mill House, Kings Mill Way, Mansfield, NG18 5ER

Students, families and schools often want to know more about R.E.A.L. Education. Sharing our vision is a helpful way for us to explain what we do and why we do it.

At R.E.A.L. Education, we believe every child has a future.

Re-thinking Engagement and Approaches to Learning for the children and young people that we work with is at the core of what we do. We understand there are often multiple barriers to some learners acquiring the skills they need, therefore we create individualised pathways to ensure that every young person can fulfil their potential.

We provide school places and alternative provision that enables young people who have been marginalised from education to develop the skills and capabilities, so that they become independent, employable and are able to contribute positively within their communities.
In our schools we aim to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum alongside the core skills that are needed for adulthood. Through our experiences and focus on improving outcomes, we have developed many leading-edge systems and processes. We work with learners across a wide range of our high-quality sites and community venues.
Our bespoke pathways which are available through both our schools and our alternative provision offer can include access to our wide range of vocational options such as-
Sports, Motor Mechanics, Construction, Adventure, Creative Digital, Land based studies, Catering, Music and Creative Arts.

At the heart of everything we do are our core values.
These are: Trust, Innovation and Achievement.
Trust – Through the positive relationships that we build with our learners and their families.
Innovation – From the rethinking and positive approaches we use when working with our learners.
Achievement – By ensuring our learners reach their goals and develop the skills needed for adulthood.
When you visit our venues or talk to our team, you’ll recognise these values at play in the way we think and work with our young people.
