Bespoke individual learning programmes


Students have individual learning plans encompassing the key features of post-16 study programmes, tailored to their needs, abilities and preferences. All plans provide opportunities for students to develop their functional, vocational, academic and personal skills, and experience community living. Our role is to provide every young person with a study programme that meets their individual needs and enables them to reach their potential in all aspects of their life. This is a place where our students flourish - our absolute priority is to ensure they achieve their goals and leave prepared for adulthood. 


For students who require a residential placement at Cambian Wing College, we offer a range of high quality homes based within 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 students are responsible for and for which they hold their own keys. Most rooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers and every house has a communal sitting room, separate dining room and large modern kitchen/dining areas.
