Pupils with learning difficulties were pampered during a visit to see what their local college has to offer.

Pupils from Queen Elizabeth 2 Silver Jubilee School, in Horsham, which caters for youngsters aged 2 to 19 with severe or profound and multiple learning difficulties, visited City College Brighton and Hove to get a flavour of their courses.

While there, they also received pampering courtesy of the college’s Hair & Beauty department. The visit, which also included visits to the college’s Carpentry and Visual Arts departments, was part of the school’s transition programme which helps pupils to identify their future educational and career opportunities.

“The QE2 pupils absolutely loved coming to City College”, said deputy head, Carol Willard.

“It gave them a valuable insight into the type of skills they could learn at a further education college while the free hair and beauty treatments they received were a big bonus too.”
