What does the service do?
We are an outstanding (CQC 2017, Ofsted 2012) specialist college providing personalised learning and transition services for people with disabilities. We work with students with complex physical, learning, sensory and communication difficulties and acquired disabilities. We offer full and part time, day and residential places, 36-52 week places, focusing on transition and achieving individual goals. Our college is a vibrant, inclusive and active environment – students have a wide range of abilities, come to us from varied social and ethnic backgrounds and participate in a wide range of community activities.
Who can use the service?
We are a specialist provider - open to young people with SEND who meet the eligibility criteria for the service.
How do you access the service?
Prospective students are encouraged to attend a college visit day with their parents. Students are offered a multi-disciplinary assessment with their parents or main carer where they have the opportunity to meet with staff from Therapies, Education and Residential Services.
Those staff will then meet to reflect on their findings from the assessment process to ensure we are able to meet the need of the young person.
How are people who use the service involved in decisions and kept informed?
Learners are empowered to be involved in all aspects of the organisation. We have an active Student Union, student parliament and two student governors.
