School OpenCheck


Welcome to New Directions

New Directions is an exciting opportunity for young people aged 14-16 in Newham. We provide a personalised curriculum that offers both practical based/vocational accreditation courses and some GCSE’s.

The relationships we have developed with a variety of agencies mean that we can deliver the extra help and support that young people may need to achieve their full potential.
