STUDENT LIFE

There are many reasons to come to Fairfield to study. We offer a natural progression from school, with a small campus in a rural setting where we offer a diverse range of learning opportunities in a safe and caring setting. We are small enough to enable all staff and students to know one another but large enough to offer a wide range of experiences that will prepare you for life after college, living and working in the community.

Work Experience

Whilst you are at college you will have the opportunity to undertake a work experience placement (with support if you need it). You may work as part of a group on a conservation project at a local quarry or at a country park. You may go on weekly work placements to a café, retail outlets, a riding stables, garden centre, school or museum. All places are flexible to meet individual needs.

Enrichment

Your well-being is important to us and taking part in sports sessions will help you to find physical activities that you enjoy and help you to stay fit. You will have the opportunity to work with young people in Wiltshire and take part in regional events. If you enjoy sports there is an opportunity to become a sports leader. You can use the college gym and sports pitch during lunch and break times.

Youth Club

The Youth Club is for young people aged between 14 and 25 years, to get together, have fun and make new friends. It is currently every Thursday in term time, 7 – 9pm. College staff facilitate and supervise Youth Club attendees and activities. We  cannot provide specific or additional support to attendees, this type of support must be provided by way of a Personal Assistant or external Support Worker.

Therapies

The college can access Speech and Language as well as Occupational Therapy as required. The college offers Talking Therapy with a specially trained Support Worker.

Holiday Activities

We offer weekly workshops throughout the holiday periods. These vary but popular workshops include: caring for animals, cooking, dance, sport, arts and craft, gardening and outdoor learning. See our website for further information and to book.

Advice and Guidance

You will be supported to find out about opportunities that will be available to you in the future and plan your course at this college to help you to achieve your long-term goals. College staff will support you to plan your transition for after you leave Fairfield.

Social Skills

The student common room is your space to socialise with your friends at lunch and break times. You can enjoy food and refreshments as well as playing games and using the computers.

Short Breaks & Residential Placements

If you are aged between 16 and 25 years and would like to learn to live independently, we offer flexible weekend and short breaks and respite to meet your needs.
