Taking risks to transform lives

Make a referral

Whether or not you’ve worked with us before, we’d love to hear from you

We’re committed to doing everything we can to best support the young people we work with. The admissions process is an integral first step in this provision.

Please help us by giving the full picture of the young person you are thinking of referring – we would love to understand their interests and strengths, as well as any needs and struggles.


Our process


Initial contact

The education provider (e.g. school or academy) gets in touch and is provided with our School Information Pack. You will discuss a potential placement with the Education Lead for your area.

Forms provided

It is essential that our Student Profile Form, Parental Consent Form, and Service Level Agreement are all returned to the Education Lead prior to an agreed start date.

Admissions Meeting

This will preferably be hosted at school and will be led by our Education Lead, along with a member of staff, the young person and a parent or carer.

And we’re off!

The turnaround can be very quick if needed – it is possible for a young person to start their placement within a week of the initial enquiry.

Essential Information

Many of your questions will be answered by taking a look at the School Information Pack. 

To request this, or to discuss making a referral, please first speak with Anna Pasco, our Education Lead, on 07737 848 090 or contact anna@urbanpursuit.co.uk

Frequently asked questions

No, we are a part-time alternative learning provision and recommend that learners attend for one to two days per week as a part of their regular school week or alongside other ALPs.

We recommend that learners attend our programme for a minimum of 12 weeks as this is when we see the biggest impact. We have lots of young people who have attended for one to two years with great success too.

Our group sessions consist of up to 6 learners alongside two members of staff.  These are a full day from 9am – 3pm.  Alternatively we run both full day and half day options for young people with a key staff member on a one-to-one basis.

Whilst we welcome enquiries from parents, our referral process takes place through a young person’s main education provider (usually their school).
