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 – 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 each student achieve their true potential. We offer a unique blend of education, pastoral care, therapy, medical support and independence training.
We are a specialist college for young people, aged 16 to 25, 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 and 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 for all young people. We have equipped our classrooms, bedrooms, eating and study areas with students’ needs and abilities in mind.
Our alumni have gone on to 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 or joining residential communities. Each achieved their goals by being enabled to achieve despite, and because, of their disability.
