We provide a term time placement for young people to give them the opportunity to meet their potential and develop the academic, social and life skills for independence and further education.
Our pupils often have many strengths and considerable potential but their progress is typically greatly impaired by the difficulties experienced by young people with Aspergerís Syndrome.
The curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of our young people whilst remaining broad and balanced in line with the National Curriculum. Accreditation includes a wide range of GCSEís including subjects such as photography and astronomy as well as ASDAN and DiDa ICT awards. Where appropriate, pupils have access to work experience, college and mainstream placements as part of their education.
Underpinning the academic curriculum there is a great deal of embedded learning to address the social and communication difficulties experienced by young people with a diagnosis of Aspergerís Syndrome.
At Farleigh College Frome we offer a safe, secure and predictable environment in which young people come to understand their own areas of difficulty and learn skills and techniques in order to overcome them. This ensures they are able to fulfil their potential socially, academically, physically and spiritually and enables them to rebuild their often shattered self-esteem and self-belief.
New pupils are allocated a personal tutor from the care or teaching staff, whose primary task is to ensure the happiness and wellbeing of individuals in their care.
During their time at Farleigh College Frome our young people will be working towards the next step in their independence pathway, with preparation for further and higher education, training or employment.
Our professional team at Farleigh College Frome is highly trained to provide the best level of support and care to each individual. Therapeutic care programmes include; speech and language therapy to develop communication skills, occupational therapy to develop areas of daily functioning and independence and counselling services to develop confidence and life skills.
