Hello and welcome to our website here at Educational Diversity.  

We are a Pupil Referral Unit and a Home, Hospital Education Service in Blackpool  supporting young people from ages 6 to 16 who are unable to access mainstream provision due to either social, emotional, behavioural or medical needs.  

I feel very fortunate to be Headteacher and both myself and my team are extremely proud of each and every one of our young people.  It is our belief that through the right guidance and support, all of our young people can achieve at the very highest level.

We have a dedicated team of highly skilled professionals who provide a holistic approach to learning in support of both the academic and the pastoral needs of our young people.

The Pupil Referral element of Educational Diversity has  two main sites across the town. Our KS4 provision is based at the Oracle on St Anne’s Road, whilst our KS2 / 3 provision is at Pegasus, situated on Bathurst Avenue.  Both of these centres support young people who have either been permanently excluded from their mainstream school or are at risk of exclusion.

Other young people attend our Home and Hospital Education Centre called Athena which is based on Whitegate Drive. This is for young people with medical or emotional needs, who are supported through CAMHS and medical practitioners.

Our vision demonstrates our commitment to work in partnership with the young people, their families and other agencies to improve the outcomes and equip each one of them with the skills to make a positive contribution to society.

“With confidence we learn, through challenge we grow, through commitment we achieve and together, we take control and realise our dreams”.

I hope you enjoy the website and if you have any questions or you would like further information, please do not hesitate in contacting directly.

Many thanks,

Wendy Casson
