Derwen College - Where Learning Comes to Life

Derwen College is a three times Ofsted graded Outstanding college providing specialist further education for over 250 students in residential and day placements.

The college is able to meet the individual and diverse needs of young people aged between 16 and 25 with a wide range of learning difficulties and associated disabilities.

We are a charity and run regular fundraising events

During 2017 we were fundraising to improve our swimming pool which students use for leisure and therapy. We raised over the £50,000 target - work is already underway! A massive thank you to all that supported us to reach this target!

Throughout 2018 our fundraising focus will be the development of a therapy and fitness centre at the college. This valuable resource will support the varying and complex needs of our learners . We will be aiming to raise £60,000.

You can visit Derwen at our dc Shopping & Leisure outlets, where our students learn vital work skills. The Garden Centre, Garden Cafe, Young's Farm Shop and the Orangery restaurant are open to visitors all year round. 

To help us track our donations, we welcome you to leave a note with your donation telling us who it is from and what it is intended to go towards, thank you.
