General Description

Camphill Wakefield is a college for students who have moderate to severe learning disabilities. We are in the centre of West and South Yorkshire sharing the best of both town and country. Our campus covers 56 acres where land-based learning provides real work experiences and skills for a wide range of student abilities.

Our award winning Craft Hub provides an inspiring range of practical learning opportunities where craft design and skills work alongside online technologies for recording and research.

Five student houses are where both day and residential students can socialise, gaining independence and life skills.

Camphill Wakefield also supports an access to work programme that has links with almost twenty local employers and aims to secure upto eight hours paid employment. close partnership working ensures that we match individual needs with employers requirements.

Outreach projects within the local community include catering, work with the elderly and project work in local parks.

Curriculum

Our college is a college without classrooms in an outstanding environment where learning takes place through land-based, craft and life skills programmes. Camphill Wakefield offers students hands-on learning where they gain good practical skills  

Students choose to learn through engaging practical skills in an enabling environment. Individual communication and employability skills underpin all activities to gain greater independence. Most students take part in an individually tailored work experience programme.

Specialist Facilities

Camphill Wakefield gives students a real opportunity to use industry standard equipment and machinery together with creative learning. We place a strong focus on students managing their own personal projects and safety, whatever their ability. This provides an environment where students gain practical and transferable skills. This might mean breaking down a task into achievable steps, team working or adapting equipment to enable students to achieve.
