The Sir Richard Branson Centre was launched in 2010 in the Ofsted Outstanding PCSA to help students with a range of conditions including dyslexia.
It has proved such a success that Head Teachers across England and Wales have looked to install such a system in their schools.
Now a new Sir Richard Branson Centre has been set up at Worle Community School just a mile from PCSA, which is being led and assisted by Priory leaders.
Principal Neville Coles said: “Our Sir Richard Branson Centre has been a tremendous success and we are delighted that Sir Richard has been such an inspiration behind students achieving great things. We hope that his name and success story model will have the same effect now at Worle.”
Priory named its new £1.4 million ‘support to learn’ centre after Sir Richard Branson to draw on his inspiration as one of the world’s best entrepreneurs despite having dyslexia as a child.
PCSA student Samantha Sleeman is one of hundreds of students to benefit from the centre.
Samantha was called an inspiration by the Virgin tycoon after achieving incredible things despite having dyslexia like Branson himself.
Branson said: “Samantha is an inspiration for anyone with dyslexia and shows that with the right support and encouragement it’s possible to achieve incredible results.
“I hope the centre continues to change the lives of students at the Priory Community School for many years to come.”
When Priory achieved Ofsted outstanding status – the first in Weston-super-Mare in Ofsted’s 22 years history, Sir Richard praised the school and centre.
