New Independence Flat

Our students really enjoy the varied offer of further education that Hamilton Lodge College provides with our partners. From accounting to painting & decorating, students can pursue an academic or vocational qualification and follow their ambitions. We also provide a wide range of support for physical, emotional and, mental health.

We are pleased to say that our offer now includes a flat for students aged 18 and above to live independently but onsite, so support is there if needed until they are feeling fully confident. They can also benefit from the sports facilities after college that we have, such as the floodlit football or basketball courts.

Simon Rogers, Head of Care:

This new independence flat enables us to prepare our students for life after Hamilton Lodge. They take responsibility for cooking and cleaning for themselves and getting themselves organised for the day. They are rising to this challenge with enthusiasm and doing very well.

A student living in the flat said:

I really like it here. It feels like a university flat and that is where I want to go after Hamilton Lodge. Living in this flat means I am learning to manage everything myself and I am very happy.
