About The Skills Hub

The Skills Hub is a co-educational Alternative Provision for pupils in the London Borough of Hillingdon who cannot attend mainstream school for a variety of reasons. It currently offers 50 places to pupils aged 11-16, many of whom have been, or are at risk of, permanent exclusion.

It is an exciting time for The Skills Hub because it moved into a brand new purpose-built site in January 2023 and will expand its intake to 120 pupils aged from 5 to 19. The new Free School will offer extensive facilities including music technology, catering and construction rooms as well as state of the art science labs and sports facilities.

Staff enjoy working with the young people who attend The Skills Hub and helping them to return to mainstream school or prepare them for the world of work, further education or training. To find out more about us visit www.theskillshub.org
