Bolton College is an inclusive College that welcomes learners with physical disabilities.
We endeavour to provide a positive college experience fostering independence for all learners; the college campus on Deane Road was built to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act legislation and relevant good practice guides.
There are a range of facilities which cater for most needs; in fact the college centres have been assessed by DisabledGo and the college facilities published on their website www.disabledgo.com. Click below to learn more:
