The Pendlebury Centre needs your support.

Donation protected
The Pendlebury Centre is a specialist alternative provision, supporting students aged 11-16 who require additional support with their social, emotional and mental health needs. We are based in Cheadle Heath, Stockport.

Our students deserve the very best.

Why are raising money? Our students deserve every opportunity to thrive, to be happy and to be successful. They should be provided with the very best opportunities within and inclusive and inspiring environment. We want to provide them with enriching, educational and challenging experiences both within the Centre and beyond that will help them to realise their ambitions and support their potential. We need to continue to fundraise to support our continued vision.

Hear the story of our PTFA Chairperson Claire Finch:
‘My son was diagnosed with an aggressive brain and spinal cancer aged 8. Due to treatment and illness he has spent years in hospital.
This has meant years lost in education, which in itself brings enough challenges, but it has also meant that he has missed out on the opportunity to build and develop friendships and experience the world outside. This lead to him loosing a great deal of confidence in himself and struggling to fit in with friends. By the time he was 12, my son was suffering from extreme anxiety and was so frightened he was unable to even get in the car to travel to school.
We were offered a place at The Pendlebury Centre, I honestly thought it was too late and that he would not be able to cope in any educational setting. I could not have been more wrong!
Within a week, he was attending everyday! The care and compassion shown by all the staff meant that he felt instantly comfortable. I could not believe it!
He still suffers from periods of time off school due to illness, but each time he goes back he instantly settles in, feels cared for and most importantly safe. I can honestly say, I believe The Pendlebury Centre has changed his life and given him a future to look forward to.
I don’t know how the staff do it at The Pendlebury Centre, but every child in a short time, realises that they are valued and cared for and that their voice is important. Every child is taught to respect themselves and others and this is recognised and rewarded.
To help continue their amazing work The Pendlebury Centre wants to buy their own minibus. This will allow their students, and my son, to go on educational visits or activities in a supported and safe way.
Please donate anything you can to help this amazing school!'
