Who We work with


Our dedicated team will identify and support appropriately the different styles of learning to enable students to engage and thrive across all areas of the curriculum.

  • Support the EHCP (Education Healthcare Plan)
  • Reduce a student becoming permanently excluded (PEX)
  • Reintegrate the student back into mainstream school or specialist provision


We know that it is a difficult time for families when a student is referred as PEX, and often parents and carers are unsure what options are available and how the alternative education model works.

  • Our skilled team will explain the options and guide parents and carers
  • Communication is key between all involved to make sure we achieve the best outcomes for all students


MIAG works with Primary and Secondary schools in Bristol, BANES, North Somerset, South Gloucester and Swindon.

  • We help schools overcome some of the learning barriers (diagnosed / undiagnosed) and unmet needs result in poor behaviours emerging in the classroom, hindering the progress of both the individual and the group.
  • Educational provision may include support and guidance in schools, short-term programmes, managed moves, 1:1 tuition or part-time alternative provision.

Our Successes…

Working with mainstream schools since 2020

MIAG have had over 30 students that’s come to MIAG for different reasons, and we have worked with Schools and Local authorities to put them in to mainstream or specialist provision in the last 3 years.

Attendance is on average 89% over the last 3 years

There have been many reasons for disengagement from Education and MIAG Staff have been very creative in how to engage with the students and to work with them to engage them back slowly into Education with a different outlook from the school environment.

We offer Work Experience and Apprenticeships to year 11 students

Over the last 2 years we have had 8 Students moved onto Apprenticeships and work experience and MIAG will now be looking to expand this offer to year 11 students who do not want to do alternative route of College.
