Our top priority is the safety of the young people we serve. We fiercely protect our pupils.

Our Schools

Our original school opened its doors in Hulme, Manchester on 9th November 2022 and is at the heart of everything we do. Our longer term ambition is to expand Rekindle schools across the country, leading a demonstration of why education policy needs to change to reflect our vision, mission and values.

Get Involved

Rekindle is based on the much-cited West African proverb: It takes a village to raise a child. Get involved and become part of our educational village.

Word on the street

I noticed that he actually wanted to be at Rekindle, I did not need to remind him to get ready. I have seen an improvement in his self confidence, a more positive outlook. No negatives, all positives.

Parent / Guardian of Rekindle Young Person

Rekindle has been a home of welcome and affection for our family. Having a support network where my daughter enjoys the activities and at the same time is developing her cognitive abilities in a process of acquiring knowledge without giving up playfulness is a dream for us.
