new directions PRU is open as usual to staff and students today Tuesday 9th February 2021



Headteacher's Welcome

At New Directions, we provide all students with a learning experience that cultivates a purposeful workplace, and opens opportunities for all students to engage with learning. Our students arrive here often having had a challenging experience at mainstream schools, for whatever reason.  What we seek to achieve at Tunmarsh is to tailor each student's educational programme such that they are able to work to their potential, make the best possible progress in their learning, and to achieve relevant skills, knowledge and qualifications to move to the next stage of their education.  


Newham PRUs have a shared vision, focused on delivering outstanding education and supporting the individual needs of all of our pupils. We work together with our pupils to find solutions and enable enriched learning experiences and a broad range of outcomes. Our core values of Progress, Responsibility and Respect are at the heart of what we do, ensuring we promote nurturing, learning community, with the welfare of our pupils, staff and community at the centre. We are working at all times to be the best we can be.
