RBAir Open Day Showcase Events 2021/22 – sign up now!

Find out how our unique and long-established blended approach to therapeutic education can help isolated young people re-engage with learning.

We have opened additional spaces from May or September 2021 for Year 10 students to access therapeutic support and take GCSEs and other academic qualifications with us in Summer 2022. Some bursary-assisted places are also available in selected areas and for students who would benefit most.

After the challenges of lockdown, inclusion is more important than ever. It is almost always best for young people to remain in mainstream education … but sometimes, despite everyone’s best efforts, that is not possible.

Red Balloon of the Air is a specialist alternative to school. We work with students through a unique blend of online and face-to-face sessions. We are experts in understanding and supporting those with trauma-related anxiety, social anxiety and barriers presented by mental and physical health issues. A number of our students face additional issues related to gender identity and autism. Such barriers to learning may be heightened in the current Year 10 cohort who are more than aware of the tough year ahead.
