What we offer

Our approach puts well-being at the core of our students’ education experience, with strong emphasis on mental health, personal development and positive social interaction alongside academic teaching.

At Red Balloon we focus on well-being, education and social engagement to ensure our students are gaining the skills and confidence they need to re-integrate with their peers.
