About Condover College

Condover College was established in 2004, initially with 9 residential students.  At the start of the academic year 2010/11 we had 41 people in residence and 7 people who accessed day provision at the college.  This increase in residents and students at the college is set to continue; as many former students remain as part of the residential college and live their adult lives in the local community.
Our mission:

"By a programme of individually designed quality education enable learners to acquire the necessary skills to pursue their aspirations and dreams, and by quality support promote the fulfilment of those aspirations and dreams for the people we support."
