About the School

Progress Schools Wigan is an Alternative Provision school situated within the Wigan Youth Zone in an enclosed wing, offering our students privacy while learning. Our class sizes are small which allows us to offer the highest-quality and bespoke teaching that supports each of our students to achieve. Each class is supported by a Teacher and a Student Engagement Mentor. We support shorter- and longer-term placements with a focus on rehabilitation into secondary school, with short respite breaks designed to support educational engagement.
