WHAT WE DO      



Our aim is to engage young people by utilising our stunning countryside & facilities.

Ad Astra is leading the way in alternative education in and around Yorkshire and have been asked to take our project further afield.

We draw on the knowledge and experience of our staff who have created a unique learning environment that we can tailor to suit the needs of the most demanding young people.








Through our Pre 16 Engagement + pathways, we work with challenging and hard to engage young people and deliver education through outdoor learning and bespoke teaching methods.

As a school, you may be able to use the Pupil Premium funding to access our provision.

We also have a higher learning program and work with young people ages 16 to 25.






We are always here to offer helpful friendly advice and to mediate when things get a little tough.

 If you would like your child to attend our classes please do not hesitate to contact us.

Some of our activities...

Bushcraft, Construction, Land Management, Habitat Creation, Wildlife Monitoring, Pest Control, Mountain Biking, Kayaking, Climbing, Horse Riding, Clay Pigion Shooting and much much more.



We have been working in partnership with Natural England since 2014, operating on over 2200 acres of the highest quality National Nature Reserve land. This allows us to teach skills such as Wildlife management, Habitat Creation, Wildlife Care and Monitoring, Constrution, Mechanics, Waterways Management, Woodland Management... the list goes on!

Ad Astra provides a bespoke way of educating students aged 11-25 years of age. We work with a range of different abilities and we ensure all students are taught in a way that suits them, whether that be 1 to 1 teaching or working in groups.


It is vital to us that we teach our students in a way that is comfortable yet beneficial to them. We work closely with schools to ensure every part of the child's emotional, mental, physical and spiritual needs are met with the diverse range of activities we provide.


We have regular reviews with parents/carers and teachers to make sure the child's needs are being met.

If you would like to introduce a child to Ad Astra we also require a PRF (Pupil Referral Form) found here. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
