Welcome from the Founder


At The Write Time our mission is to help young people achieve their full potential by offering the best quality provision of support and education to provide them the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in today’s challenging environment and make the best possible choices for their future.

We understand that mainstream education does not work for every student so The Write Time operates a small, independent school (registered for up to 15 students) in Croydon for students aged 11-16. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to engage the hardest to reach students with complex needs in education and offer a package of pastoral care, personal development and quality teaching. 

The Alternative Education Provision forms the heart of what The Write Time is all about and we believe that positive relationships are the foundation of getting the best out of young people. I firmly believe in the expression:

 “It’s not until they know you care that they care what you know”.

Our goal is to create a learning environment using William Glasser’s educational philosophy and practice based on Choice Theory.  The Alternative Provision aims to be a joyful school where students want to come and learn with the belief that the most amount of learning occurs if learning is fun and engaging. Academic learning is balanced with a wrap around programme of personal and social development and healthy living skills.

We welcome visitors, if you wish to make an appointment to see the centre and the great work we are doing please call to arrange a convenient time.
