With effect from the 1st May 2020, the Peterborough Pupil Referral Service became a member of the Thomas Deacon Education Trust. It also changed it's name to the Richard Barnes Academy.
This site will be upgraded to reflect this change however, in the interim period all references to the 'Peterborough Pupil Referral Service' or 'PPRS' can should be construed as the 'Richard Barnes Academy' and 'RBA' as appropriate.
Welcome to the Peterborough Pupil Referral Service (PPRS) website. We are a unique specialist service working across the City with pupils aged 4-16, their parents, schools and other support services. Our first contact with you may well be at a time of uncertainty, concern and confusion and our aim is to be sensitive to your needs, guide and support you as a family, or a school, through unfamiliar processes and a difficult time.
For pupils who then enter one of our Learning Centres we offer high quality, personalised learning programmes aimed at maximising their personal and academic potential.
