Rivers Education Support Centre

We are

a unique organisation

That works with children in East Herts and Broxbourne who are experiencing difficulties in mainstream secondary school because of their social, emotional and mental health difficulties. 

Our Ofsted Report for 2023/24 is now available via the following link: Ofsted Report - 2023-24

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.
