Alternative Provision

Abbey View – Free School

Abbey View School is an Alternative Provision Free School in the heart of Tewkesbury. It provides a calm environment and a balanced curriculum to motivate, inspire, and empower young people from Schools across Gloucestershire. Chipping Campden School, has been a commissioning school since Abbey View's inception.

A placement at Abbey View Alternative Free School may be offered, as a temporary or longer term placement, as an intervention for students who find meeting the demands of mainstream education challenging.

Abbey View also provides an alternative education for students who are excluded for a number of days or for those at risk of permanent exclusion. Students are required to attend Abbey View on the sixth day of any exclusion though it may be agreed that this begins from the point of exclusion. Entry to Abbey View is strictly by referral from Chipping Campden School.

Chipping Campden School utilises the services of other alternative provision providers as appropriate as part of personalised plans for students who are not main stream ready.
