About Livability Education

Our accredited special education centres – Livability Victoria School, Livability Nash College and Livability Millie College - provide specialised learning for students with disabilities, aged 3 to 25. 

  • Livability Victoria School is a non-maintained, special school in Poole, Dorset, offering high quality education, therapy and care for young people aged 3-19 years old.
  • Livability Nash College supports young people aged 19-25, with moderate to profound learning disabilities and works as a springboard into adult life.
  • Livability Mille College is based at Holton Lee, a 350-acre countryside site in Poole, Dorset. The college’s enterprise curriculum supports students aged 16-25+ to develop core skills and connects them with work and volunteering opportunities.

We offer an inspiring and personalised curriculum across our education settings that instils a lifelong love of learning and creates opportunities for students to develop life and work skills, preparing them for adult life and independence.

Working alongside partners from local authorities, mainstream and SEND schools and colleges, community and church groups, as well as businesses in the communities that we serve, we support our young people to achieve their goals and aspirations.

Our education settings also benefit from collaborative relationships with Higher Education institutions, including the Tizard Centre at the University of Kent, and Bournemouth University, and professional associations including NATSPEC, NASS and the Association of Colleges.

Livability Education is part of Livability, the national disability charity.

Created by a merger of The Shaftesbury Society and John Grooms, Livability has a 170-year track record in community and inclusion work.

Through a range of disability, education, training and community services, we remove the barriers facing the people we support and enable them to lead fulfilling lives.
