Nautilus College places emphasis on the strengths in provision of services to students.

These Include;


  • The creation of a small safe, supported environment,

  • Staff work with students on a basis of empowerment, rather than a model of power and control,

  • That access through education allows the inclusion of other support mechanisms.

The College also firmly believes in the following key principles of our school:

  • The student is the centre of the education plan, and all plans revolve around the needs of the student educationally, emotionally and socially,

  • That there is rigor in the educational program provided,

  • Life Skills assist to remove barriers to education and employment.
