Autism Centre

What is the College like?
Brooklands College has an exceptional reputation for providing education and training to young people with learning difficulties.  As such the college has been selected to provide a specialised facility for students with autism and higher level needs. 

What is the Centre like?
The centre based at our Weybridge campus provides a unique college based setting for students in Surrey.  Students will enjoy the security of a secure building in a quiet area of the college whilst having the opportunity to integrate into the wider college environment.

It includes:

• Library area
• Socialising/eating area
• Horticulture facilities
• Outdoor ‘trim trail’
• Sensory room
• Quiet room & break out areas

What is the Curriculum like?
The curriculum is student centred, with progression pathways planned with our feeder schools.

There is a focus on vocational options, using the facilities at the college including:
• Art
• Catering
• Media
• Motor Vehicle
• Retail
• Sport

We aim to integrate students into the main college wherever and whenever possible.  This will depend on the individual student and their needs, interests and abilities.

Programmes include personal and social development, life skills, work skills, Maths, English and ICT.  There is an emphasis on gradual integration into college and local community.

What Transition Arrangements will be made for Prospective Students?
You will be offered:
• Opportunities to come to Brooklands on visits and taster days
• A bespoke interview process, followed up by ‘ASC friendly’ communication, such as visual planners, timelines and DVDs
• A two-day summer school at the new centre (in addition to any other school link arrangements made with the young person’s school).
