​​​​​​​Our Values - the 4 Rs:


Having respect for ourselves, other people and our environment.


Developing positive relationships and behaviours with peers, staff and family.


A never give up attitude which equips pupils with the drive to succeed in even the most challenging of circumstances.


To move on to the next stage of life, be it back into mainstream school or on to new opportunities after year 11.


‘He is a changed boy. Mainstream school was a painful experience for the whole family. We believe Rivers ESC saved him and our family as before he joined the whole family were at crisis point . The team at Rivers are nothing short of amazing. Just a massive thank you to everyone. Keep doing the great job you already do!’



Just wanted to say thank you to you and all the staff at Rivers ESC for helping and supporting my son whilst he has been there. All the support has helped him finish his education, which I didn’t think would happen! You have all helped him to keep on the straight and narrow, so thank you once again!



The best thing about my child completing their education at Rivers was the teachers! They are all brilliant and my son would not have done as well anywhere else.



‘Love to all members of staff at Rivers ESC! Thank you for not kicking me out!’


‘ He was happy here and achieved much more than he would have in his mainstream school.’
