Welcome to Rise@GHC - a new learning centre for pupils with specific special educational needs.

Rise@GHC is a new learning centre for young people with specific learning needs opened in Bracknell Forest in September 2015.  The specialist unit, funded by Bracknell Forest Council and a grant from the Department for Education, serves pupils aged 11-19 with high functioning autistic spectrum conditions living in Bracknell Forest and other local authorities.

The centre is part of Garth Hill College, but operates in dedicated buildings within a ten minute walk and two minute drive of the main Garth Hill site.

The vision for Rise@GHC is one of personal growth, development and attainment for pupils that might struggle attending a mainstream setting on a full-time basis. We are able to bridge that gap in offering a more personalised environment.   Our aim is to make this a valued resource in the community, especially for families of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
I look forward to updating you on the progress of Rise@GHC.  Do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss Rise@GHC with me in more detail.
