AgeFrom 16 to 25 years old
Bridge College is a non-residential specialist FE college. We meet the needs of students up to the age of 25 years with learning difficulties and disabilities, complex needs, communication disorders and autism.
With our new state of the art campus, we have access to a wide range of leisure and community facilities in Manchester as well as parks and open spaces. This means our students can learn in lots of different settings and develop the skills needed for life as an active and valued young adult in your community.
Students can experience our hydrotherapy pool, our sensory rooms and our rebound room within a wide programme of activities. The effective multi-disciplinary assessment informs the young person's learning programme and identifies the appropriate learning environment and support strategies.
This actively enables the young person to engage in a range of challenging and fun sessions. Schools. Parents/carers and other agencies are invited to path planning meetings to support transition and consistency from college to home environments.
Our belief is that everyone should have the chance to achieve their potential, there are no exceptions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmVAJ-jusQM Our college is part of the Together Trust, a charity that is approaching its 150 year anniversary of working with young people with learning disability and autism.
