The Springboard Centre is located within the on-site Enhanced Provision centre on Kingdown School's main school site. This is located on the lower floor of the Languages Building - near to the Dining Hall.

It offers temporary and longer term education placements to students who find learning in a mainstream secondary school extremely challenging due to difficulties with physical mobility (either through injury, accident or SEN), Communication and Interaction and/or difficulties relating to anxiety. 

It is staffed full-time by one specialist teacher who works closely with subject teachers to ensure a full curriculum is provided. Springboard has access to an outside green space where students are able to take their break times and have some of their lessons (weather allowing).

There are no more than eight children placed at Springboard at any one time. Kingdown School's Senior Leadership Team oversee and support Springboard.
