Building the skills for a happy and fulfilling future
We use young people’s interests to engage them with learning and build the skills and confidence they need for an independent and fulfilling future. Our learning programmes focus on supporting students to be happy and healthy, gaining employability skills and contributing positively to the community.
Our students are fantastic ambassadors for Arden College and their achievements are inspirational. They leave us ready to live their best lives and we are very proud of the work that we do to support them. We equip students to navigate the complex challenges of becoming adults, and the transition from school into employment, education and greater independence.
Specialist facilities and small class sizes
Our class sizes are very small, with typically no more than five students. This is key to providing the intensive specialist support our young people need to achieve their potential.
Wherever possible, students learn in real-life settings within the community. Our college has a range of exciting facilities, including Arden Café, a hair and Beauty centre, Duke of Edinburgh Centre, Horticulture Centre, Employment Hub and our Performing Arts Studio. The college buildings are designed to meet the sensory and learning needs of students with autism and provide low stimulus and visually structured learning environments.
