About us

Ambitious College is an independent specialist day college dedicated to supporting young people with autism aged 16–25. I am delighted that you are considering us as the next step in your son or daughter’s educational journey.

We believe that every young person attending Ambitious College deserves a fulfilling, happy and rewarding life. Our educational approach focuses 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. We are located within two mainstream further education college campuses: the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL), and West Thames College, West London. Linda Looney is the Principal of both College campuses. At each campus, our team of dedicated and passionate professionals includes: teachers, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, employment specialists, behaviour analysts and specialist support staff. They do not take a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Instead, they work together to come up with learning and support approaches tailored to the individual.

Through a range of partnerships with local businesses, community groups and our mainstream college partners, we also offer opportunities to learn in the community. This combined approach – personalised education, positive support and real work experience – delivers results. It allows our young people to achieve their goals, fulfil their potential and go on to lead active lives in their community.

I really do hope you choose Ambitious College and look forward to working with you and your son or daughter in the very near future.
