Our History

Formed in 2008, the Trust was first set up to help oil the cogs of a fledgling company, born to deliver alternatives to mainstream education.

This new company, R.E.A.L Education, has earned an excellent reputation for re-engaging children and young people in learning.

R.E.A.L Education (Ltd) offers One to One, Small groups & Vocational courses across the East Midlands. Short & long term interventions, through to full time delivery and management of education for a young person.

The last 10 years has seen a period of healthy growth including the formation of The R.E.A.L Alternative Provision School (RAPS) which supports young people at Key Stage 4, offering well-equipped bases including several vocational groups.

The R.E.A.L Independent School (RIS) offers full-time school placements for young people with complex additional needs.

In 2020, the Charitable Trust released itself from the R.E.A.L Group and sits as a stand-alone charity.

The Trust will still work closely with our schools, ensuring sustainability within our projects.
