A new alternative school for teenagers who struggle with mainstream high school has opened at the Kincumber Youth Centre.
Principal Ms Gab McIntosh said “Our School, Eagle Arts and Vocational College, is a much more relaxed type of school. “We have more art and sport than mainstream schools,” Ms McIntosh said. “We still do the basic subjects like English, Maths and Science, but we have no exams or homework. “Students with anxiety or depression can do quite well with us and we also accept school refusers. “Eagle is a private school with no fees. “It has shorter hours and fewer days and we pick up from, and drop off to, students’ homes.
