Kyle had a troubled history at secondary school. A bright primary pupil, he became disengaged and had narrowly escaped exclusion on two occasions. The school was keen not to exclude him, but realised Kyle needed time out – a chance to mature and re-engage with learning. Kyle joined our KS3 education programme in year 9 for two terms for 15 hours a week – the rest of his week was spent both in school and other active alternative learning pursuits. Kyle took to learning online well. His confidence improved and so did his English and Maths! Kyle is now back full time in his mainstream school and doing well.

Feel the freedom!

Apricot Online offers a go-anywhere solution to alternative learning provision. We bring school to the pupil wherever there is a computer and a broadband connection. And a growing number of clients throughout the UK are taking a byte of what we have to offer: live, interactive online education delivered by qualified teachers.

Career evolution

Apricot offers short courses in independent careers advice. Apricot promotes the discovery of the self in helping students determine appropriate career paths. Work related learning is essential for many young people at risk. Learning how to cooperate with others and recognise authority in the work place is just as important as workplace skills.

Learn from home

It's never easy to be isolated. Apricot lends a hand by linking with other students across the country from the comfort of your students' own home or hospital bed. Pupils with a diversity of needs ranging from physical or mental health problems, SEN, social difficulties, behaviour issues or simply requiring a little extra support to re-engage with learning are all progressing with Apricot’s support and innovative online education techniques.

Just imagine...

Let our technology lead the way to great ideas for all your students. Re-engagement is our strength and exciting new ways of thinking and learning is our passion. Our students routinely make improvements not only in academic performance, but also in their confidence, motivation, punctuality, and ability to settle into lessons.
