About Us

Stone Soup Academy is a remarkable place, it shatters many preconceived notions about what Alternative Provision is and what the young people we work with are capable of. We have a dedicated team of teachers leading our education complimented by an engagement team offering support and guidance to students and teachers. Our training programmes continually recruit and train the next generation of staff who specialise in working with our young people.
