Welcome to the Hampden House Website

Hampden House is a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) in Sudbury, which can take up to 30 boys in Key Stage 2 and 3 (currently aged 9-14), from across the whole of Suffolk.

As a PRU are unique in that we have 12 places for boarders, who stay with us from Monday morning to Friday afternoon. We also have a further 18 places for day boys. All our students have been excluded or are at risk of permanent exclusion from mainstream schools. They are referred to us through Suffolk County Council, and are taught in small classes, usually no larger than 6 students with two members of staff.

Our team of staff is experienced in providing a caring, stimulating and supportive environment where young people not only achieve academically but also develop greater social and emotional awareness. Forming strong, positive relationships with our students and their families is at the core of our success, as well as understanding and responding to their specific, individual needs.

We work hard to make the students' time with us rewarding and enjoyable, with a clear focus on progress. The length of time boys spend at Hampden House depends on their needs and circumstances. Many boys spend two to three terms with us, with the aim of making a successful phased return to mainstream education with appropriate support. However, boys often spend longer at Hampden House, preparing to move on to the education provider that is right for them.

We are currently making some exciting improvements to our facilities, including creating additional learning spaces.
