About us

What we do at Leighton College

We are a  SEND further education provision for young people with learning disabilities. We deliver two courses, the Personal Development course (two years) and the Employability course (one year).

Who is the college for?

Young people aged between 16-25 years from all London boroughs with mild to moderate learning disabilities. Leighton College is an appropriate provision for young people who may find it difficult to cope in a larger or mainstream environment.

How Leighton College works

Our courses build students’ confidence in communication, develop skills for independent living, and prepare them for employment. The courses include lessons in Literacy, Numeracy, Cookery, Drama, Sports and Art.  Community learning is integral to the course-students receive support to access public transport and learn about their local community and services.

Students are given the opportunity to experience the world of work with a programme of work placements.
