WELCOME to Linkage College – the longest-established independent further education college in the country for young people with learning disabilities.

We operate two main campuses – in picturesque parkland surroundings on Weelsby Road in Grimsby, and at Toynton All Saints near Spilsby, with a third on the way from Autumn 2017 at Boultham Park in Lincoln. Our students are a mix of residential and day students – no matter which campus you study at, the experience you will have will be second to none.

Linkage offers a combination of classroom sessions, realistic working environments, work experience and student enterprise activities. You can be confident of success, shown by our track record of some of the highest qualification success rates in the country. We have an enviable reputation of exceeding expectations of what you can achieve when you first join us.

Whether you join us as a day learner, part-time or full-time, or as a residential student, we promise to help you develop your skills, confidence, knowledge and potential.

We will help you do this in exciting and challenging ways that will help you develop as an adult and be well prepared for the next stage of your life.

We believe that learning should be something you enjoy, so you can also expect to have a lot of fun while you learn!

We know that all our learners have their own set of things that they want and need to learn, so we build your learning around you, with just the right amount of support you need. Most of our learners tell us they learn best by doing things, so we will give you a combination of classroom sessions and real-life practical learning experiences that will enable you to learn by doing.

But…don’t just take our word for it. Come along and visit us. Have a look at what we offer, see our brilliant facilities and have a chat with our learners. Download our Ofsted report below. Drop us an email to and we’ll be in touch or call us on 01472 372311.
