Part of the students' programme at College House is practising budgeting skills. It is beneficial if they have a bank or building society account, with a cash point card, into which their benefits are paid.
Information about benefits can be obtained from your local benefits office. Students may be eligible for Personal Independence Payment and Employment and Support Allowance. If you require further information please contact College House.
There is a cost for living at College House. Weekly rent is £40.00 for the academic year 2017-18. This includes food and lodging costs. Other anticipated costs each week for the year are: £30.00 activity money and £15.00 to buy lunch while at College.
When your son/daughter is travelling independently, an additional £10-£12 per week will be required for train travel.
