At St Helens College, we help young adults with impairments and learning challenges get ready for adulthood. We collaborate with our students to help them get ready for their next steps towards a fulfilling adult life.

Everything we do is focused on our students. Our young people benefit from a customised, comprehensive, and balanced curriculum with worthwhile learning opportunities that concentrate on adulthood preparation and progress in fulfilling each person's EHCP goals. Our curriculum explicitly emphasises communication skills, confidence, and wellbeing. It also includes community engagement, the growth of friendships, and support for good health. It also helps our students build fundamental literacy and numeracy skills for adult life.
