Welcome to New River College

New River College is a consortium of three Pupil Referral Units (PRU) split across four sites in the London Borough of Islington. The Secondary PRU is based at Lough Road, with a satellite centre for pupils with social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties at Elthorne Road. The Primary PRU is also based at our Cloudesley Square site, whilst the Medical PRU offers provision at the Whittington Hospital and Elthorne Road, and also provides home schooling where necessary.

New River College aims to provide a short term educational intervention which is designed either to maintain a pupil’s mainstream school placement, or in cases where this has already broken down, to facilitate a return to mainstream as soon as appropriate.
