Student support

Our Student Support Service is here to support blind and partially sighted students aged 11+ to get the most out of their secondary, college and university education.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to thrive in education. That is why we have produced a range of resources and information for students (including mature students), parents and carers and professionals, on everything related to 11+, post 16 and university education.

We hope that you can find most of the information you are looking for on our web pages, but if you can’t or need more bespoke information then we can provide one to one information and support via our support service.

Contact us at

Or call our student support line on 0203 757 8040. Our line is manned every Tuesday and Wednesday between 10am and 4pm. Outside of these hours, you will be asked to leave your name, number and a short message and a member of our team will return your call.

You can also connect with other blind and partially sighted students and share information and tips via our Student Support Facebook group: Join our Student Support Facebook group
