The College is a Residential Care Facility and College for 16-25 year olds who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (learning difficulties and special needs). The site covers 1.2 hectares of house and gardens in the countryside between Barry and Sully that was the former rectory to the parish of Sully. The project involved the conversion and extension of the existing rectory, a later warden's house and a barn/coach house together with new infill buildings to create a courtyard development. The scheme created 38 beds in the Rectory conversion and extension and a further 22 beds in the other buildings along with common rooms, ancillary accommodation, staff and teaching areas. The support facilities include a central kitchen, a laundry and staff/ visitor parking areas. The development is for young people who have reached the end of state education but still need close support and for whom there are very limited opportunities in the community, other than living at home with parents. The college caters for their residential and personal care needs as well as offering continuing educational opportunities on and off site. The buildings are grouped around a secure central courtyard which provides landscaped and recreational areas. The wider grounds are also utilized as recreational & amenity space and include gardens and a potting shed for horticultural lessons.
The Practice obtained a further planning approval for an additional unit providing another 18 beds and social/activity/training rooms.
A second phase of development in 2010/2011 completed the courtyard enclosure to provide a further 18 bedrooms as well as enhancing the social and teaching facilities.
