Life at Portland

We know you’ll love your Portland experience. Our 32-acre woodland campus provides an environment in which you can explore, learn and shine. Preparing you for a more independent and fulfilling future.

Being Healthy, Active and Courageous

Our new Be Healthy, Active and Courageous project focuses on your health and well-being. You will be encouraged to take part in physical and enriching activities as part of your education programme.

Social Activities

As a learner, you’ll have the chance to enjoy lots of social activities to help you make friends, develop social skills and have loads of fun. These might include our Friday night disco, trips into the community or events on campus. 

Woodland Adventure Zone

You will have free access to our triple-award winning Woodland Adventure Zone where you can challenge yourself on our 7m climbing and abseiling tower, take the plunge on our 90m zipline or explore the woodland trails and our sensory play equipment.

Enrichment Activities

We build exciting enrichment activities into your programme so you can learn different skills away from the classroom.  These might include sports clubs, archery, cooking lessons, performing arts or games and quizzes. 

National Citizen Service 

Here at Portland we deliver a number of National Citizen Service (NCS) programmes throughout the year in partnership with other local providers. You may have the opportunity of accessing an NCS programme if you have not already completed one at school.
