Welcome to KORU Independent AP Academy

Inspiring And Developing Young People To Achieve Their Full Potential

The Koru symbol is from the Maori tradition and forms the basis for their community.  It represents new beginnings, passion and strength and this is the strong ethos of all the staff at Koru Educational Services.  Our aim is to create a community where our young people feel cared for and are able to reach their full potential through our strong "growth mind set" philosophy.

Koru was founded by Head Teacher, Shona Anderson, in March 2017 and now has a strong team of 12 staff to educate and support students with their secondary education from ages 11 to 16.

We help young people to achieve their GCSE's or other suitable qualifications in order to ensure that they are able to progress to College or onto apprenticeships.  With the younger students we are often helping them to make better behaviour choices so that they are able to return to mainstream school and continue their education.
