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.”

The amazing report recognised that “Pastoral support is exceptional” and that “The school goes ‘above and beyond’ to provide experiences where pupils come out of their comfort zones and develop self-confidence and resilience”. The inspector also acknowledged the brilliant work being done by teachers to support students to progress from often low starting points “Pupils …. make strong educational and holistic progress”.

Well done to all, a brilliant result!
