Residential College Provision

Residential

There are a number of residential packages available ranging from 52 week to termly fornightly or weekly boarding (Monday – Friday), and anything in between.

We have 3 houses that are based on the periphery of the college site and 4 houses that are located in the local communities of Brighton, Hove and Seaford.

The needs of our college residential young people 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.

There is a strong emphasis on the Waking Day Curriculum whereby learning occurs and is embedded throughout all aspects of the residential and educational settings. Please click here to see our  Waking Day Curriculum Policy.

All of our learners develop skills, knowledge and understanding within a variety of learning environments and through different learning activities that form the curriculum. Effective teaching and learning enables all learners to progress from their starting points towards the achievement of our 5 placement outcomes:

  • Wellbeing
  • Communication
  • Skills
  • Independence
  • Employability

The Waking Day curriculum prepares all learners well for increased independence, successful and fulfilling lives. Community access a is a focus for all residents, supporting and enabling them to develop the skills to create and maintain social relationships as well as the ability to access and function in modern society.
