Equality & Diversity

We are committed to demonstrating equality of opportunity and mutual respect and positively encourage all of our students to achieve the best they can.

Students help promote equality and diversity in many ways through events and volunteering opportunities.


We have many ways to help students with specific needs to settle into college.
Our modern £28million college campus has been designed with accessibility for disabled visitors and students in mind.

Helping you learn

A dedicated Focus Centre provides regular one-to-one support to those with specific learning difficulties or disabilities.

The Focus Centre team also help all students with any learning problems, ranging from planning and writing essays to time management.

For more information on the support offered and to view details of SJD’s Local Offer please use the following link: SJD Local Offer Page

Helping everyone settle in

The College's mentoring service involves volunteer trained Year 13 students whose job it is to help new students to settle in to College life. It’s based on the idea that people often learn best from those who are a few steps further down the road they wish to travel.
