General Description

Treloar’s provides outstanding education, care, therapy, medical support and independence training to young people with complex physical disabilities between the ages of 16 and 25. Our aim is to enable all learners to achieve their long-term goals. This could include: living a more independent life; providing a meaningful contribution to society; and, for some, the prospect of higher education and/or employment.

Catchment Area

We are a national provider.


Treloar's offer a number of different learner pathways dependent upon the individual student's abilities and achievements, with the final aim of a placement goal being at the core of their choices and courses.

The vocational pathway provides study through levels 1 to 3 with courses offered at both Treloar's and in collaboration with Alton College, a local mainstream sixth form college. Options include art and design (including media and photography), business and administration, IT, sports leaders award, enterprise, employability and personal finance. In addition a full range of courses at level 2 and level 3 is available at Alton College

Our Preparation for Adulthood area, incorporating the Sensory and Interactive pathway, provides a set of core sessions around developing students’ skills and knowledge in the areas of Independent Living, Employment and Leisure, Community Inclusion and Health and Wellbeing.

Specialist Facilities

The College shares a campus with Treloar School on the edge of the market town of Alton in Hampshire. Facilities are specially designed, and mostly purpose built, to cater for the needs of students with complex physical disabilities in order to benefit their independence and maintain their self-respect. We provide on-site medical care including nursing and therapy plus many other services such as assistive technology and counselling. Our educational curriculum is complemented by opportunities to gain social, independence and personal wellbeing skills and our students enjoy an extensive and varied social life both on and off campus.
