General Description

Langdon College has two campuses: one is situated in the heart of the North Manchester Jewish community in Salford, which caters for students requiring either residential or day provision; the other in Edgware, which offers day provision only. The college provides education and support for Jewish students primarily, who have a variety of complex learning difficulties and disabilities, and Autistic Spectrum Conditions and communication disorders.


Each student is offered a person-centred curriculum in a culturally appropriate environment. Our multi-disciplinary team focuses on the everyday skills students' need to live a more independent life: through personal and social development; developing and applying a range of functional life skills in everyday settings; learning and achieving nationally accredited vocational qualifications; and access to a wide variety of employment opportunities that are designed to support the student in gaining the skills necessary to progress into voluntary or paid employment. All students participate in the extended curriculum which incorporates the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge gained in a culturally social and vibrant local community setting.

Specialist Facilities

Students are taught in small classes tailored to the needs of the individual by a multi-disciplinary team providing therapeutic support and enabling technologies. The college's employability programme enables all students to develop a range of work-related skills and social communication opportunities.
