Outstanding PRU wins ASDAN-sponsored TES award

Published

The Limes College, Sutton, won the TES Schools Awards alternative provision school of the year at a ceremony in London on Friday.

Sponsored by ASDAN, the category was open to any standalone alternative provision organisation such as special schools and pupil referral units (PRU).

The Limes College is a PRU for students aged five to 16. Ofsted rated the college outstanding last year, singling out the excellent behaviour of students. A high proportion of Key Stage 2 and 3 learners at the unit successfully return to mainstream school and almost all students in Key Stage 4 leave with recognised qualifications and an apprenticeship or sixth form placement.
