Ambitious College



Ambitious College is London’s first specialist day college for young people with autism, which was set up by Ambitious about Autism in 2014. The college serves young people aged 16 to 25 with autism and learning disabilities from across London and the Home Counties. Ambitious College has two campuses based within the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London and West Thames College.  

We are aspirational and ambitious for our learners and believe that with the right support, many of them can have a place in a mainstream educational setting. That’s why our campuses are co-located within mainstream further education colleges. This allows us to offer a much wider curriculum and provide learners with a broad range of mainstream vocational learning, and social and work experience opportunities.  

Using our Ambitious Approach to education, we focus on the individual at all times. We offer a highly personalised curriculum and positively support our learners to acquire new skills and take part in everyday life.  

Ambitious College is registered as a specialist day college and inspected by Ofsted as Good 

It is run by Ambitious about Autism, the national charity for children and young people with autism.

Other notes

The majority of our learners access college five days a week for 40 weeks of the year. The college day starts at 9.30am and ends at 4pm.

Our learners are funded by local authorities, usually from education budgets with some input from social care and / or health as best meets the young person’s needs. Personal budgets can be used for the service, though we are in the early stages of exploring this with families and local authorities.
