Specialist facilities

Sensory Learning Base

A purpose-built, safe, self-contained, specialist facility at the College’s Knightstone Campus for students with Profound and Complex Learning Difficulties and/or Disabilities (PCLD). This facility includes specialist classrooms, an independent kitchen dining area, personal care facilities and a sensory room – the first of its kind in the region.

This state-of-the-art resource provides staff with the ability to develop individualised high quality multi-sensory programmes for students, using a wide range of sensory experiences and holistic approaches. Staff in the Sensory Learning Base work in collaboration with external agencies to ensure every student receives outstanding support and positive outcomes. 

The Workshop

The Workshop has been designed to further enhance the learning offer to students. This dedicated multi-trade workshop delivers a range of courses including: painting, decorating, carpentry and bicycle maintenance.

Kitchen and Independent Living Area

A dedicated food preparation, cooking and laundry area enables students to develop their independent living skills. This includes students being able to develop the skills to make a cold drink, right through to students who are now able to independently plan, budget, shop for and cook a three-course meal.

One Message, Different Voices

Take a look at this powerful film made by the staff of Weston College to show how important it is for everyone from different backgrounds to be included. The film shares heartfelt stories and interviews with a diverse group of staff, showing how accepting different identities and backgrounds can make a big difference. Its purpose is to encourage viewers to think about their own biases and work towards making our community more welcoming to all. We invite everyone, regardless of their background, to join us and be a part of our journey toward a more inclusive future.

Halo workplace logo

Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. We celebrate Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps. In this workplace, we recognise and celebrate our colleagues’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on an employee's ability to succeed.
