Special Educational Needs
Birtenshaw College is located in Bolton and provides specialist further education for learners aged 16 to 25 with Special Educational Needs and Disability including physical disability, complex health needs, learning disability and autism.
The College was established in 2014 in collaboration with Bolton College and Bolton Council. The joint project was in response to the lack of local further education opportunities for disabled learners leaving school who could not access mainstream college courses because of the high level of support they needed. It has been an Independent Special Post 16 Provider since September 2016.

Because Kingsdown supports children with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD) many come from a broad catchment area with 90 per cent brought into school via a transportation service.
