About Learning for Life


Principal’s Welcome

Hello and a very warm welcome to Learning for Life, a specialist provider of education and care for adults with high support needs, special educational needs or disabilities.
Based in the North East of England, our team of professionals are passionate about providing a learner centred, stimulating, effective environment where learners can fulfill their potential and prepare for life ahead. We assist every individual to celebrate their unique identity and support the young peoples’ desire to achieve ambitious goals. We could not achieve this without the support of parents, carers, learners, professionals and other stakeholders, they are instrumental in supporting us to provide a consistently high-quality service.

I do hope you find this website interesting and informative and if you should require any further information please contact us.
