Bridge College - Together Trust

Bridge College is a specialist college like no other. We’re part of Together Trust, a charity that believes everyone deserves an equal chance in life – no exceptions. 

At Bridge, we make this happen.

Based in Openshaw, Manchester, we’ve been providing special education to young people for over 25 years. 

We cater for young people aged 16 – 25 years with physical and/or learning disabilities, complex health needs, communication disorders and autistic spectrum conditions.

Why Bridge?Bridge College - Together Trust

We want our students to leave as confident, independent young adults who are fully prepared for life after college. That’s why we take every opportunity to develop and promote our students’ independence skills, both in college and the local community. 

Every learning opportunity is carefully planned, monitored and evaluated so that students enjoy the learning experience, develop self-esteem, and are proud of their achievements. 

“If something matters to our students, it matters to us.”

Support at Bridge

All of our students are unique. That’s why the support we provide is tailored to each individual. 

Bridge’s therapists work closely with tutors, support workers, students’ families and carers to ensure they get the best possible support in and outside college. Therapeutic support includes speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, clinical psychology and positive behavioural support. Our person-centred and tailored approach helps break down each Bridge College - Together Truststudent’s barriers to learning. 

Teamed with the support of our expert staff team, our facilities provide our students with the best possible learning environment, including a hydrotherapy pool, wheelchair swings, sensory integration space and more. 

We think that Bridge College truly is a specialist college like no other. But don’t take our word for it, contact us to arrange a tour or find out more about Bridge College and the support we can offer. Call us on 0161 487 4293 or email
