RSBC Dorton College of Further Education

Thank you for visiting the RSBC Dorton College pages. RSBC Dorton College is our independent specialist college in the London Borough of Bromley. We offer a day provision for vision impaired 16-25-year-olds and many of our students have additional needs.

Our students come from across London and the southeast region, and we are the only independent specialist further education provider for vision impaired young people in this area.

Dorton College offers a wide range of courses to study on, ranging from Entry Level to Level 3 qualifications. These are studied alongside our bespoke specialist VI curriculum and supported by a diverse range of specialist VI trained staff.  Students progress towards a wide range of different and exciting destinations after college including employment, University, voluntary work and much more!

Dorton College works closely with a range of partners, from both mainstream and specialist educational settings, to ensure that students get the very best from their time with us. We have ‘hybrid’ partnership arrangements with local General Further Education Colleges (GFE’s), which further increases the range and opportunities our students have access to. We also offer bespoke full or part-time hub only curriculum programmes, which are delivered via a curriculum which is unique to each student.

If you are interested in what Dorton College has to offer, please see our current prospectus.
