Our Provision

The Key Education Centre offers education for children who are temporarily unable to attend school because of the following reasons:

• they have been permanently excluded from school

• they are at risk of being permanently excluded from school

• they are unable to access school because they are emotionally vulnerable

• they are unable to access school because they are facing an absence of 15+ continuous school days due to ill health.

All referrals to The Key Education Centre are made by Headteachers and The Local Authority

Professionals considering a referral to The Key are invited to consult the prospectus opposite. It outlines our different provisions and lists relevant contacts.

Our Sites

The Key Education Centre is made up of two schools - one in Gosport and the other in Havant.

The Headteacher for both sites is Mrs Leanne Forde-Nassey.

A single management committee oversees the governance of both sites.

Both sites are Local Authority Maintained Schools.
