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.

We are delighted how the groups from Stone Soup have engaged with our activities and it is genuinely a highlight of the week for all of our coaches to see the students get stuck in and progress. We hope this is the beginning of a lasting relationship that will have a positive impact on the education and social development of the students involved and hopefully also create some awesome skateboarders!

Stone Soup Academy’s recent trip to Edale

We are starting an ‘Aspire’ group focusing upon BAME this year to highlight positive role models, share life stories and motivate our learners away from more negative influences led by deprivation, lack of ambition and vulnerability. Would anyone like to support us please?
