Coventry Extended Learning Centre is a Pupil Referral Unit for Key Stage 3 & 4 pupils who have struggled to be in mainstream school education due to Social, Emotional & Mental Health (SEMH) issues leading to challenging behaviour.  

The core purpose of the ELC is ‘Enhancing Futures’ - maximising the potential of all our students though getting them into mainstream or special education settings or meeting their needs within their centres.

They pride themselves on providing the best quality teaching, fostering ambition and showing their students that they can fulfil their potential through hard work .

Their staff are committed to supporting and developing students to become confident and well equipped with skills to continue their learning journey when they leave them.  They have positive expectations of the behaviour and performance of every pupil and foster an atmosphere of mutual respect between pupils and staff. 

Students receive a broad and balanced curriculum, with opportunities in Key Stage 4 to access Work Relating Learning.

The Coventry ELC has three centres:

  • Wyken - Key Stage 3 
  • The Link - Key Stage 4
  • Swanswell - Key Stage 4
