Aspire Alternative Provision

Chiltern Skills and Enterprise Centre (CSEC)




Cameron Road
01494 358015



CSEC is our Alternative Provision (AP) school in Chesham, catering for permanently excluded students and students at risk of exclusion in the South of Buckinghamshire.

Students come to us for a short period of time while we work with them, their families and their mainstream school, to identify strategies that will help them manage their emotions and be successful at school. Sometimes our assessments indicate that mainstream is not the right place for a student, and in this case, we will work with them, their families and the local authority to help them move into a specialist setting.

Our aim at CSEC is to help students rediscover a love of learning, to help them learn and use strategies to regulate their emotions and manage their behaviour, and to help them identify and work towards a positive destination for their next steps in education and life.
