Specialist Education

As all of the young people we work with face difficulties in everyday life as a result of their learning difficulties and associated mental health conditions; we are set up to provide bespoke programmes that ensure they can experience appropriate and holistic support to improve their health and well-being, as well as their educational outcomes.


We are fully funded by the Education Funding Agency to deliver high-quality, bespoke study programmes for all of our learners. Based on each learner's abilities and ambitions, these programmes are designed to include a broad range of academic and vocational learning opportunities, alongside work based learning, enrichment and tutorial.


Overall, we aim to meet the four preparing for adult outcomes:


✓ Employment

✓ Independence

✓ Community Inclusion

✓ Health


All programmes include a focus on the development of English and Mathematic skills at an appropriate level and achievements are accredited through a wide range of recognised awarding bodies.


Student Support


We recognise that learners with additional needs may require support that is not ordinarily available. With this is mind, teaching groups are usually no larger than six learners and support is provided by specialist education, care and therapy staff. All environments are carefully designed to provide the best sensory environment to encourage engagement and learning.




For learners who require a residential placement at Cambian Wing College, we offer a range of high quality detached homes in the local community, close to the coastal town of Bournemouth. Each of our homes are located close to the main college campus and all are accessible with strong public transport links.


All of our residential accommodation is regularly refurbished, and well-appointed single bedrooms that learners are responsible for and for which they hold their own keys. Most rooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers and every house has a communial sitting room, separate dining room and large modern kitchen/dining areas.


All of the houses and the college campus ahve outdoor space that can be enjoyed by learners for relaxation and entertainment.


Our team of a care staff are highly skilled in suporting learners within the residential setting and input to the waking-day curriculum, providing activities and enrichment during evenings and weekends.
