on creative arts, communication and self expression.
Students are offered a variety of specialist support from highly
trained individuals, they include:
Tutors and lecturers
Learning support workers

principles and within the IABA (Institute for Applied Behaviour

IT support and guidance
Beaumont offers students a supportive and stimulating environment
to live and study. We want all of our students to increase their
independence and gradually take on greater responsibility and
control over their lives. Students contribute to the running of the
college through the very active Student Council, student working
groups and representation at Governors’ meetings.
Beaumont is a friendly and stimulating place where students
can face challenges, in realistic situations, develop interests and
gradually gain the skills and confidence they need to move on
to the next stage of their lives.
