You may have missed it but Evening Post reporter Ian Rosser visited the Oakwood Pupil Support Centre...

"TAKE Leeds's most disruptive youngsters and put them in classrooms together. It sounds like a recipe for disaster, doesn't it? In fact, these unlikely ingredients have produced a remarkable success story in which children with a history of volatile behaviour have turned their lives around.The youngsters, aged seven to 11, are all pupils at the Oakwood Pupil Support Centre in east Leeds. From the outside, the one-story building is a bit grim – hidden away behind 6ft-high grey railings and a car park but inside some of the country's most innovative work is being done helping children re-tune to learning."

The Oakwood Pupil Support Centre is a hugely impressive place doing some great work and if you want to read more of Ian Rosser's article you can visit
