The Island Learning Centre

What support does the Island Learning Centre offer?

The Island Learning Centre (ILC) is a Pupil Referral Unit providing specialised alternative provision for some of the most vulnerable students on the Isle of Wight.

  • they work with students from 11 to 16 who require additional help with their social, emotional, or mental health needs
  • they support to children who for whatever reason, are unable to attend school
  • they aim to ensure that pupils return and re-integrate into school as soon as possible

They also support pupils who have a medical condition which prevents attendance at school for a considerable time, but does not prevent learning. This includes:

  • pupils who need tuition whilst in hospital
  • pupils who are phobic or suffer from anxiety related difficulties
  • pregnant and school age young mothers

In April 2014, Clatterford Tuition Centre and Thompson House Tuition Centre moved from their separate sites and are now both located at The Island Learning Centre but their provision continues to remain separate.
