Welcome to Wings

Paul BrosnanMy name is Paul Brosnan and I am Director of Wings Schools.

Our schools are very unique places that offer young people another chance in their lives.

We aim to provide outstanding education that results in nationally recognized outcomes that young people can use to move their lives forward after Wings.

We work hard to support young people to overcome their past negative experiences and find their individual talents so they can make positive contributions inside and outside the Wings community and feel good about themselves again.

The drive to help our young people to be safe and healthy is worked on through the 24 hour curriculum and shows them that we “care too much” to allow them to put themselves at risk of failing to achieve successful, independent lives.

With the care, attention and devotion of the staff team at Wings, we do believe that our young people can truly fly!

Please do not hesitate to contact the schools for more information or to arrange a visit.

We look forward to welcoming you to our schools.

I came to do a talk at Wings and I want you to pass my thanks on to them, it was such an enjoyable visit, it was a pleasure to talk to them.  They made me feel very welcome; nothing was too much trouble for them. I had a great time at Wings and left full of admiration for your school, staff and pupils. The pupils I met are a credit to you. - School Visitor

I would like to say a big thank you for all your help whilst I was at Wings, getting my GCSE results made it apparent to me how much help and support you have all given me over the years. Without all your pushing in the right direction I honestly don’t know where I would be today without all your guidance. - Young Person

I think the job we do is the hardest of all jobs, its is more than a job it is a vocation and I am writing to thank you and your team of staff for their support and acknowledge the building blocks they have helped the young person to form in regard to his future life. - Social Worker
