Wize Up is an Independent school located within the Royal borough of Greenwich, offering specialist alternative educational provision for young people both male and female aged 11-16 on a full-time and part-time basis. Founded in 2008, we work with up to 40 young people who have a variety of social, emotional, educational and behavioural needs which could not be fully catered for in mainstream education. These needs may include young people with Statements of Special Educational Needs, however due to our specialism all who attend are regarded as either "School Action or School Action Plus".

Please be advise the school is open today Thursday 1st March, full attendance is expected, thank you in advance

About us

Our aim was to fill the gap by working with young people who have been excluded or were on the verge of being excluded from mainstream school, and equip them with a toolkit of skills to overcome issues which are typical to young people growing up in these times. We focus on building young people from within and concentrate on modifying behaviour to enable optimum learning potentials. "Students speak positively about the school, commenting that they would not be in education if it were not for Wize Up" – Wize Up Ofsted Inspection Report 2011. We hope you will find our website informative, please ensure you visit us often and follow us on twitter so you are kept up to date with all new developments.
