WHO WE ARE
The Mendip Centre is a KS4 Pupil Refferal Unit (PRU) working with young people in Yrs 10 & 11 for whom mainstream education has not been successful. Part of Somerset's PRS, we offer a variety of exam courses up to and including GCSE, as well as a whole host of activities for which there are no exams, such as football, climbing, cooking, singing, drum lessons, caving, etc.
Opened in April 1993, the Centre has a very strong history of working successfully with some of the County's more troubled young people; we work on the basis of co-operation and care, respect for each other and everyone's work. A recent OFSTED report (Dec '05) praised the Centre for it's good work and the hard work of the staff and students.
