‘Rebuild, Reintegrate and Rediscover’ with Ipswich’s Reboot Education

Reboot Education is a new alternative education provision in Ipswich, which opened at The Coach House, Gymnasium Street in January 2024.

Penn was pleased to assist and advise former Headteachers Paul Arch and Viv Hunt on their new premises, and occupation was arranged in super-quick time ready for the New Year start date!  

Reboot Education provides an off-site alternative provision for children in Key Stages 2 and 3, accommodating between 4 to 8 students a day. Children can attend for between one and three days per week, from 9.30am to 2.30pm.

In its care, children develop and learn a range of computer skills that help them engage in future learning and improve their future employment prospects. They also take part in a range of social activities, and therapeutic interventions.

Paul Arch, Co-CEO & Director of Education, says:  

"The Coach House is the perfect setting for our provision, as it allows us to create an environment that feels like a home when you first enter the building, but when you go upstairs it is more of a relaxed learning environment, that doesn't look like a classroom, but it does look like a place of learning. 

"We are really pleased with how our business is going. We have nearly filled all our places until the end of this academic year, and we already have referrals for the new academic year. So far since February, we have worked with 15 students and have received really positive feedback from the schools/organisations that have commissioned our services. 

"Working with Rachael and the team at Penn has been a really positive experience. We had a lot to learn about leasing a commercial property and Rachael was always quick to respond to our inquiries and questions.

"Penn understood the idea behind our business and were great at showing us properties that may suit our purpose. They also understood our timeline to get set-up within and worked hard to ensure that we were in a property ready to open for the start of January."
