Do you work with children or young people with autism?

Do you know children who are struggling with social and/or emotional issues?

Are any of them having difficulty accessing the curriculum or even coming to school or college?

Rainbow Horses Learning Centre is an Approved Alternative Education Provision.

We provide a calm, supportive, outdoor space where children and young people can learn about themselves and develop their strengths.

We offer bespoke packages for groups or individuals wishing to explore issues such as bullying, anxiety, managing behaviour, teamwork and assertiveness.

We can help children achieve nationally recognised qualifications through the Open College Network, through working with the horses.

English, maths and other curriculum subjects can be embedded in practical activities that are motivating and support learning retention.
