North Herts
Education Support Centre


Some comments from Parent/Carers:

"The Centre has taken my daughter in and worked with her to help her overcome her issues and get an education. She has improved and grown. The Centre staff are always helpful and go out of their way to assist both parents and learners. Good work and thanks."
"My son would not be ready for his college placement without coming here. Thanks for all your hard work."
"Very impressed with the staff and the set up of the school. {Name} enjoys coming to the school and has a positive attitude. The hairdressing salon is outstanding."

Some comments from Mainstream School staff:

"The ESC has been a huge turning point for several of our students. We really appreciate the effort that the staff at the ESC have made and continue to make with our students."
"I can always remember Brian Frederick taking me to the Secondary Support Centre at its previous site in Letchworth about 14 years ago. I was impressed by its work then and have continued to be so over the years. It has provided an education which has enabled many of our students, who have left school achieving nothing, to make a very positive start to the adult world."
"Students who otherwise might well have failed to complete their education have benefited from it's Outreach work, respite care and Years 10 and 11 courses."
"The NHESC provides a range of courses, tailor made to suit individuals' needs and this contributes so much to its success."
"My fondest memories are of the Open days when I could see how much progress some of our students had made and how full of confidence they were in looking forward to the next stage of their education or employment. The interpersonal skills they developed with the Centre have given many of our ex students a new and more optimistic view of life and what it offered."
"It has been a pleasure to work closely with NHESC and a greater pleasure to see the opportunities provided to our students and witness their achievements."
"I have known and been a community neighbour of the North Herts Education Support Centre for over six years. It has changed its role in that time but it has always been and remains a place devoted to helping young people to help themselves. I can recall several young people with whom I have worked for whom ordinary school was no longer appropriate. It did not matter why - what mattered was that I knew there was a place with colleagues who could give advice or practical help to me or, occasionally, welcome a student to the Centre and provide the opportunities needed at that time in their lives."

Some comments from Outside Agencies:

"The NHESC goes from strength to strength. Attending graduations is a testament to the hard work that all staff have with their students. It is always a pleasure coming to the Centre and working with Students and Staff. Well done and thank you."
"It was a pleasure to see what positive outcomes the students have achieved and are able to leave well equipped for their future. It is clear this has been achieved through the dedication, support and belief of the staff at the Centre."
"All year 11s interviewed were positive about their futures and next steps were planned, college and apprenticeships."
