Additional information from provider

Colleges usually meet the cost of a college place from within their budget. If a student needs extra support that will cost more than £6,000 a year, the local authority pays top up funding. The college or the young person's lead professional will need to discuss this with the local authority as early as possible in the planning process. Visits are welcome Monday to Friday - please contact Gail Bird to arrange a suitable date and time.
