General Description

Brentwood Community College is a Specialist College for young adults with a wide range of complex needs including severe or profound learning difficulties, autism spectrum conditions and associated communication, sensory, behavioural and health needs

Catchment Area

Most students are from Trafford, however we do have some students from neighbouring boroughs.


We aim to equip each student with the essential life skills that they will need for the future as they work towards their Outcomes for Adulthood. We work onsite and with community partners to provide a range of relevant, practically based and highly motivating learning opportunities which enable students to explore their options and successfully transition into their adult lives.

Students are supported by a team of highly trained tutors, TAs, SEN assistants, therapists and external agencies to achieve their goals.

  • 3 multi-purpose classrooms (college use only)
