    Outstanding transformative education and pastoral care

    The College provides outstanding transformative education and pastoral care for boys who thrive in a specialist learning environment. The impact of our stimulating surroundings provides a meaningful setting for a broad and balanced educational experience.

    Slindon College is a centre of excellence for moderate learning difficulties. The College adopts a holistic approach to learning support so that class teachers and specialist staff work together for the benefit of pupils who require individual support. We support a wide range of Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) including Autism Spectrum Disorder.

    We have the skills, experience and resources to provide a comprehensive support package, tailored to the needs of your son.

    Our ISI report in 2022 stated that ‘The quality of the pupil’ personal development is excellent’ and ‘Pupils rapidly develop in their self-confidence, self-awareness and self-worth as they move through the school.’
