As an Alternative Provision we work within the Croydon guidance on Provision for children with SEN in schools which explains the ways pupils with different additional needs are provided for within the school. We also follow our ‘Equality and Disability’ policy.

Supreme Education AP is part of the Inclusion service. We receive referrals from mainstream schools, Croydon Local Authority via the Alternative Approved Provision Panel and Islington.

 The aim is to provide education to secondary-aged pupils who experience difficulties accessing schooling for several   reasons or who are not able to maintain a placement at a mainstream school, including pupils with an EHCP.

 This means that the young people may have:

  • Been unable to get a school place

  • Refused to go to school

  • Been permanently excluded

  • Put themselves at risk of exclusion


 Young people are referred to Francis Barber through the following services:

  • Pupil Services

  • Education Welfare

  • Secondary Schools

  • Children Looked After Team

  • Special Needs Department


Supreme Education AP is an independent school with a strong commitment to supporting young people to equip them with the best possible skills and qualifications they will need to further their future. All young people are offered a provision that is best suited to their particular needs and are offered inclusive teaching which will enable them to make the best possible progress in school and feel that they are valued members of the wider school community.


 Supreme AP aims to be a place where pupils can:

  • Develop their potential in a safe and supportive environment

  • Make good progress with their learning

  • Work towards returning to school or prepare for college, employment or training
