    The school provides a full time alternative education for students between the ages of 14 to 16. Combining a GCSE programme with enrichment activities and pastoral support.

    The School was set up by Southend YMCA through the Free School system so young people could gain a suitable education, aiding them to contribute, thrive and reach their potential.

    New Beginnings is a life skills curriculum programme. ​We offer accredited and non- accredited learning opportunities that help increase young people’s confidence and self-belief so they begin to trust in their abilities and learn and apply new skills.
