Our Provisions


Welcome from the Headteacher

Across Newham PRUs we continually strive to enable our students to be successful in gaining the knowledge, skills and self awareness which will allow them to aspire towards and prepare for their futures. 

Newham PRUs provide a safe and supported learning environment, motivating and inspiring students to access a broad, relevant curriculum which leads to many of our KS4 students achieving outstanding results in GCSE and other vocational qualifications. Students are encouraged to reflect, understand their personal challenges and when they are ready, to take the reins and apply their skills, knowledge and reflection to create their own successful futures.

In July 2022 Newham PRUs (Tunmarsh School, New Directions PRU and Phoenix) were awarded with National Nurturing Schools Award. This was the result of several years of hard work in developing and embedding Nurture Principles and Practice across our schools, and then undergoing a thorough assessment process. Our schools were assessed against a wide range of standards and we have fully evidenced that we implement and embed a nurturing culture that responds to the social, emotional and mental health needs of all our students, and the wider school community. This is a huge achievement that brings pride and positivity to all stakeholders and demonstrates that nurture and care is at the heart of everything we do.
