Trinity Specialist College is a Further Education day placement college providing a 36 week provision for students with learning disabilities, challenging behaviours and/or Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).
The college is small and friendly and currently caters for 20 students at ‘The Lindridge’, which is a converted and much extended farmhouse located in a beautiful rural setting surrounded by farm land, and a further 10 places based approximately 10 minutes away by Sutton Park.
The buildings are spacious with three large classrooms, each accommodating up to 10 students. There is space for group sessions, individual work stations, ICT work stations, relaxation areas and ‘safe spaces’ where students are encouraged to self-manage their anxieties.
There are wet rooms for personal care, a large garden with picnic benches and sporting facilities, a sensory cabin and a domestic kitchen and laundry where learners can develop their independence skills.
The curriculum has been created to accommodate a personalised timetable based on the needs of individual students. It engages students on and off site and both in and around the community. It is flexible and always focuses on the key priorities of the college, which are: to enable learners to develop skills that support a successful transition to adulthood; to promote and build upon their individual level of independence; and, where possible, to develop employment possibilities, travel training opportunities and help facilitate semi-independent living.
The college offers a wide range of accredited and non-accredited courses to meet the individual needs of young people and with a view to increasing their independence and social skills in all aspects of their life.
The college curriculum is bespoke to meet the needs of the individual and support their progression.
