About Us

Fairfield Farm College is a Specialist College for students with learning disabilities; it is a registered Charity, with residential, day and weekend courses. You can join the Vocational and Independence Training course when you are between 16 and 19 years old, but can join when older providing you have completed your course before your 25th Birthday.

We are situated in the village of Dilton Marsh in Wiltshire. Our 26-acre farm site includes well-resourced teaching and vocational learning areas, a student common room, conference room, café and a farm shop. We offer residential programmes delivered in our four houses in the village.

When you start at the College, you will take part in an induction course where you can try all of our subjects to help us develop a programme with you that meets your longer term aspirations.
This includes:

• Independence Training and Personal, Social and Health Education, (PSHE)
