The curriculum at Mercury College takes full advantage of its location, working in partnership with its associated specialist residential homes and supported living service; developing skills and independence through learning in home and community environments that offer warmth, security and consistency.

  • Specialist Residential Homes – The Limes and The Paddocks are residential transitions services for young adults (18-25). The Limes sits next door to Mercury College, right in the heart of its community and The Paddocks in the rural village of Wadworth situated in a beautiful 14 acre site. Both homes offer specialist accommodation (solo and shared) and support to students engaged in Mercury College learning programmes.


  • Specialist Supported Living – offering a range of accommodation in partnership with social landlords enabling us to provide bespoke supported living to Mercury College students.


Staff at these services work closely and collaboratively with the education team at Mercury College to ensure students are learning and living their best lives.

The Limes, The Paddocks and Specialist Supported Living services are all registered with The Care Quality Commission (CQC) – inspection reports are available via CQC at
