Name Change

We are happy to announce that we have changed our name to Camphill Wakefield, this is to reflect our pride at being part of Wakefield’s local offer for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) delivery and to ensure that our innovative approach becomes better known locally and identified as a Wakefield and Camphill success.

We will be launching a new and more informative website soon and invite you to come back and look at www.camphill.ac.uk in the near future.

Preparing for Adulthood and providing a Local Offer are key themes in Pennine. We are often described as a college without classrooms where learning takes place through hands on learning. Ofsted have described our college as Good with students gaining outstanding practical skills.
