The Wing Centre is a 38 & 52 week residential and day post-16 centre for up to 46 students aged 16-30 with a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome. The campus is located next to Southlands School in the village of Boldre, near Lymington, Hampshire. The Centre also has two independent living houses in Bournemouth, Dorset.

Our objectives are for every one of our students to leave us better able to understand and take part in the community, wherever that may be. Our environment is specifically geared to meet the needs of these young and developing men by offering a safe, caring community. We work hard to help our students develop into confident adults who are more open to change and more receptive to others.

The Cambian philosophy encompasses a multi-disciplinary holistic and therapeutic approach to our students and their difficulties: we believe in non-aversive positive contact; we do not believe in punishment in any form. However, all schools and colleges will have their own codes of conduct for students, where the equal rights, no-bullying ethos of the school or college, and the need to follow ‘The Rules’ for the safety and comfort of all, will be strongly emphasised.

All staff employed are subject to enhanced Disclosure by the Criminal Records Bureau and Cambian has a comprehensive Child and Adult Protection Policy that all staff are fully aware of. The Cambian staff training programme means that all staff undergo initial induction and foundation training in the difficulties that our students face on a daily basis, and continuing staff development requires this training to be built on regularly.

For full details of our educational, residential and leisure resources, our clinical and therapeutic approaches, our strategies for behaviour enhancement, social skills, life and daily-living skills programmes , please visit our website and read our prospectus.

Our history:
We became a part of Cambian Education Services in September 2005, when, after 30 years of management by The Hesley Group, The Wing Centre and six of its sister schools and colleges were purchased by Cambian Education. Our total commitment to high quality care and education for our students in all our schools and colleges is further extended by these recent changes.

Come and visit:
Nothing replaces a visit to get a ‘feel’ for a school or college and we invite parents and professionals to call our Freephone No – 0800 138 1184 - to arrange a mutually convenient time to come and see us at work and play.
