On offer at Kite College
A Safe, Nurturing College
We ensure all our learners are given equal opportunity to engage in college life by putting their individual needs at the forefront of their learning. Programmes are taught in smaller teaching groups to allow a more focused approach to teaching whilst building confidence and developing independence.
You can purchase light meals, refreshments, and snacks in our College Canteen throughout the day. We also provide a breakfast club and subsidise meals for those who are entitled to Free School Meals.
NB: Make sure you advise the kitchen staff if you have any allergies.
