The Evolution Centre is a New Reflexions independent, day, secondary school for young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties. Whilst New Reflexions provides an integrated service of care, education and therapy, the Evolution Centre also accepts students from other care companies, foster placements and from LEA’s.

We offer individually tailored educational programmes to meet each young person’s needs, combining academic study and accreditation; vocational learning; personal skills and outdoor education to suit each student. 

The school offers students a nurturing environment in which to grow, learn and develop. All of our staff are trained in Reflective Therapeutic Intervention to ensure a consistent approach to managing behaviour and this compliments a structured provision along with our high expectations and firm boundaries.


“Achieving personal growth through educational challenge and teamwork.”

We are now offering all students face to face teaching in school alongside online teaching sessions based at home, all with their regular teaching staff. Students are being brought into school in smaller groups with just a couple of staff at a time, to minimise risk but maximise learning opportunities. If you have any queries please do contact the school. 

School expansion plans!
22nd June 2020

We are delighted to announce plans to expand our secondary school to a new site near Middletown and to open a primary school at the former school site. Continuing our Darwin theme, the new school will be called The Henslow School, after Charles Darwin's mentor and the new primary school will remain as the Evolution School. We are in the process of recruiting some quality staff to ensure that we maintain our high standards of care and nurture for our young people.
