General Description

At Beaumont College we work as one team to make a difference in the lives of our students. Our aim is to enable students to take responsibility for their own lives in whichever form this takes. Our interdisciplinary team do all they can to help students realise their dreams in the safest way possible.

Students are offered a variety of specialist support from highly trained staff, working alongside our tutors.

Beaumont College is a friendly place where students can develop interests and gradually gain the skills and confidence they need to move on to the next stage of their lives.


The Beaumont curriculum consists of five ‘Pathways’ to learning that are chosen following a person-centred assessment. Learning is session and community based and delivered in real settings. This ensures that students are able to transfer skills beyond their college course.  Our 5 Pathways to learning are:

  • sensory communication
  • intentional communication
  • access through partnerships
  • independent lifestyle skills
  • life and vocational


Specialist Facilities

All our teaching spaces are accessible and versatile, with a range of Assistive Technology available throughout, including interactive whiteboards and specialist software.  Many rooms also have specialist resources including tracking hoists, movement harnesses, electric rise-and-fall desks, multimedia audio visual equipment, video editing suite, switch adapted photography and film making equipment, and a recording studio with a range of accessible music equipment and software.

The college also has several ‘studio’ spaces used for performance, dance, music, enterprise events and social functions. Students have access to a wide range of therapy equipment to use within sessions and around the college, as well as a fleet of accessible vehicles for off-site learning activities.
