Our Mission

“Raising aspirations and improving lives.”

The College opened in 1995 and has a well-qualified staff team that are highly experienced in autism specific teaching, learning and support.

Based in Sunderland, Newcastle and Stockton, the College provides day and residential education for young people between the ages of 16 and 25 years with autism. Students come from across the country to access this specialist provision that enables them to achieve their personal ambitions.

All students have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and the majority have additional and complex needs including learning disabilities, ADHD, mental health conditions, behaviours that challenge and sensory issues.
