The needs of our post-19 resident learners range from those who require assistance to carry out basic daily tasks, such as washing and dressing, to those who are totally independent and only require staff to continue to support them with regard to their behaviour and the more taxing tasks such as budgeting and the essential skills needed for independent living. All residential groups are arranged based on assessed need and compatibility, rather than ability or disability.

All learners in the residential homes are able to use the College and School grounds and facilities for enrichment activities that support the Waking day Curriculum.

Learners are encouraged to personalise their rooms with pictures/posters and personal belongings and where necessary are supported in doing this.
