Camphill Community and Independant Specialist Further Education College offering education, training and support for young people who have learning disabilities. On the outskirts of Wakefield, West Yorkshire. There are opportunities for volunteering.


Pennine  is an independent specialist college providing for young people who have learning difficulties.

Preparing for Adulthood and providing a Local Offer are key themes in Pennine. We are often described as a college without classrooms where learning takes place through hands on learning. Ofsted have described our students gaining outstanding practical skills.

Although most of our students are day students Pennine offers an extended college programme for full residential and weekly boarding options.

Pennine is in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. We are within easy reach from both the M1 and M62. We are accessible for day students from Wakefield, Barnsley, Doncaster, Kirklees and south Leeds. Our site covers 58-acres, including farmland and horse riding facilities. We have good access to public transport and local amenities.

There are a number of videos on the site which give a good flavour of Pennine.
