Treloar College prepares our residential and day students for the many challenges of adult life by concentrating on the whole person. We create unique plans for all abilities and dreams – from independent living and personal development, learning skills for life and gaining qualifications.
We believe that taking a holistic approach is the best way to help you achieve your true potential. We offer a unique blend of education, pastoral care, therapy, medical support and independence training.
“Being treated as a young adult and receiving encouragement to speak up for what I believe is what Treloar's is all about".
Treloar College is a specialist college for young people, aged 16 or over, with physical disabilities from all over the UK and overseas. Based in Holybourne, near Alton in Hampshire, we have all the expertise and facilities that young people need to learn and develop as adults, in a really positive, supportive environment. We aim to help them achieve their potential, develop self-reliance and take responsibility, by providing an excellent and challenging educational, therapeutic and residential environment. Our facilities and equipment are designed to make life easier and more productive. We have equipped our classrooms, bedrooms, eating and study areas with students in mind.
Our alumni have gone on to do a whole range of activities from university education to work in the voluntary sector, competing in the Paralympics to starting their own record label, from living independently to joining residential communities. Each achieved their goals by being enabled to achieve despite and because of their disability.
Ofsted commented: "Governors, leaders and managers have been uncompromising in the pursuit and effective implementation of an ambitious strategic vision for students at the college".
