The College was opened in 2011. It was started and is run by two sets of working parents who had struggled to find appropriate provision for their own young adults with disabilities.
The college is small and friendly and currently caters for 24 students at ‘The Lindridge’, which is a converted and much extended farmhouse located in a beautiful rural setting surrounded by farm land.
The building is light, spacious and airy with three large classrooms, each accommodating up to eight students. There is space for group sessions, individual work stations, ICT work stations, relaxation areas and ‘safe spaces’ where students are encouraged to self-manage their anxieties.
There are wet rooms for personal care, a large garden with picnic benches and sporting facilities, a sensory cabin and a domestic kitchen and laundry where learners can develop their independence skills.
Our vision is to be a model of best practice for post I9 education for young people with severe learning disabilities and/or autism.
Our purpose is to educate, empower and prepare our young people to develop their skills and confidence to succed in being part of their community and their transition to adulthood.
