Company Description

Catch22 is a social business, a not-for-profit business, with a social mission. For over 200 years we have designed and delivered services that build resilience and aspiration in people and communities. Our 1600 colleagues work at every stage of the social welfare cycle, supporting 44,000 individuals, from cradle to career.

Catch22 Include

Catch22 include is an alternative education provider for young people. Over 700 vulnerable young people with challenging behaviours are supported through independent alternative education schools, and a range of tailored support programmes, which are delivered either in school, or off-site. Include schools provide an alternative to mainstream schooling, whereby multiple barriers to learning have previously affected engagement and access to education.

Catch22 include Norfolk is an Ofsted registered independent school. It provides full-time, alternative, secondary education for young people years 9-11, who have been excluded from their previous school or pupil referral unit, or who need additional support to what is offered by a mainstream setting.
