We pride ourselves in making sure that all students get the support they need to develop and achieve whilst at Northern College.
Additional Learning Support
We help students with additional needs such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, Autistic Spectrum Condition, ADHD, hearing and visual impairments and medical conditions including mental health.
You can tell us about any additional needs you have when you apply. We will ask you for further details, as well as any medical or assessment information you may have. Following assessment, we will work with you to put in place any required support.
This may include:
We aim to provide individually tailored support to help you overcome barriers, build resilience, and meet targets as part of becoming more independent.
Mental health and wellbeing
We are committed to supporting its students to feel well both mentally and physically. Sometimes it can be difficult to stay focussed on your college work and remain positive, so the college has a range of activities to support mental health and wellbeing. As a student it is important that you tell us if you’re experience difficulties so we can help you get the very best student experience whilst studying with us.
You can also use the NHS website to find contact details for a wide range of mental health charities, organisations and support groups.

We have a multi-faith room, with far reaching beautiful views across the National Trust gardens and parkland. The multi-faith room can be used for prayer or quiet contemplation for those with no faith. The college also has a number of chaplains who can support students in pastor care, prayer or as a listening ear. The room and Chaplain Service can be used by all students regardless of faith background.
College is not just about studying qualifications. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in college life, develop new skills and interests as well as meet students from different courses.
