Dacorum Education Support Centre


Welcome to Dacorum Education Support Centre known more informally as DESC.

We are a highly successful and outstanding pupil referral unit working with young people, their families, schools and other professionals.

At DESC we passionately believe in giving young people a second chance to succeed.  Our collective aim is to support, enable and empower them as individuals.  It is this core belief that is central to the way in which we work with each young person.

Fundamental to this is our partnership working with the young person at the centre.  Our bespoke approach to each individual’s needs, interests, aptitudes and aspirations allows us to develop a tailor made provision, which re-engages and enthuses them in their learning and in their future.

Education in its widest definition, I believe, is the passport for their life long journey as young people enter adulthood.  It is our mission to best equip them for these challenges and those that lie ahead.
