Learn with us

Learn with us at National Star. Whether you want to discover more about the world around you, actively contribute to the community or gain a job or voluntary role after college, National Star is the place for you.

With campuses in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Wales you can learn with us on a full or part-time basis as a residential or day student, depending upon where you live.

There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ National Star student. Students range in age from 16 to 25-years-old, with more than 100 studying as residential and day students at our campus in Gloucestershire. Many day students travel from Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Worcestershire to study with us.

We celebrate the diversity of all learners, who bring something vibrant and special to college. We work with young people with a range of complex and multiple learning and physical disabilities, so we know you’ll fit right in and soon see National Star College as your ‘home from home’.

What we offer

We invest time in getting to know your ideas for the future so that we understand what you need to learn to get there. This starts from the day we meet you and your parents and carers for the first time.

Our approach to learning is to be as flexible, creative and resourceful as possible, providing learning sessions that meet the needs of each student.

Depending on where you choose to learn with us, you will be able to take advantage of a range of first-class facilities.

These include an aquatic therapy pool, sensory suites, horticultural spaces, dance studio, IT suites, gyms, an award-winning bistro and a printing enterprise.
