Principal’s Welcome

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you find the information useful on our pioneering Free School.

The Ladder School is a brand-new school for Walsall, to cater for the needs of young people within the local community; to offer something different educationally. The Ladder School will support young people at risk of exclusion from mainstream provision, primarily because of behavioural difficulties or because their needs cannot be met in a mainstream setting.

About Us

The Ladder campaign is an initiative which encourages businesses of all sizes in the region to work together and help give young people the opportunity to prosper in their organisations. It has been a great success in the Black Country and working together with Mercian Trust to support the new Ladder School is the next natural progression on the journey to ensure our young people have the best possible skills, experience and future employment opportunities.

Our Mission

The Ladder School will be a safe, well ordered and caring environment for learning. It will deliver high quality education to all its students and will support them to develop their individual potential for growth, self-worth and self-control.
