Our Mission: To realise the full potential of children and young adults with Special Educational Needs through the provision of high quality education in order to equip each pupil with skills to become productive, independent members of society.

IS YOUR CHILD FOR UNITY
Our School has the support of a Counselling Psychologist, Speech and Language therapists and an Occupational therapist. Fill in several questionnaires online, and conclude if your child is for Unity College.
A balanced learning programme is emphasised to encourage the academic and practical abilities of our learners. Learning areas covered are Literacy, Mathematics, Human Social Science, Art and Crafts, Design and Technology etc.
We aim to educate each individual within an environment of respect, honesty and compassion. We aim to create a safe environment, in which each child is academically extended and stimulated in all areas of learning.
Our Work Experience Programme is the placement of our Learners on an employer’s premises to carry out a range of tasks and duties, more or less as would an employee, but with the emphasis on exposure to world of work and the learning aspects of the experience.
Work Experience is an important part of becoming “workplace-ready” by building useful skills that cannot be taught in the classroom as well as providing learners a “preview” of the world of work.
