Website accessibility

To support with access to the WM College website, we have made the following adjustments:

  • All images have ALT tags (text descriptions) 
  • PDF documents are optimised for web viewing 
  • Pages are structured in a semantic way that improves screen reader efficiency 
  • Text is in a web-friendly font and size 

This website has been built to adhere to accessibility guidelines, however, we know some parts of this website are not yet fully accessible for instance some older PDFs may not be fully accessible via the screen reader.  We are continuing to develop the website to ensure that as many people as possible are able to use it.

Website help

If you have any questions relating to this website’s accessibility please email


Both our Crowndale Road and Kentish Town sites are older buildings.  Crowndale Road dates from the early 1900s and is a listed building.  This means that some of our rooms will be difficult to access if you have mobility issues.  If you are a wheelchair user or have disability related to your mobility, please check with us before enrolling so that we can make sure you can access the classroom or studio in your chosen subject.  Contact Learner Services team and they will arrange for you to speak with our Disability Officer.

When you meet with the Disability Officer they will discuss with you how your disability affects your mobility.  They will look at the classroom that you may be using and agree safe routes and in out of the building; this will include emergency exit in case of fire.  In some cases we may recommend a different course in a different location to facilitate your safe entry and exit.  

If you have not spoken to the Disability Officer prior to your enrolment, someone from the Additional Learning Support team will be in touch.  We ask that you respond to us as soon as practically possible to enable us to prioritise your safety.  If you do not respond and we are unable to work with you on your entry and exit plan, we may need to cancel your enrolment as there is a legal requirement for the College to have a mobility register which includes evacuation information, in some cases this will include a Personal Evacuation Plan (PEEP).  Some learners may not need any assistance at all and we need to record that too.

Important Note:  We are in the process of replacing our internal stairlifts.  As at September 2023, the stairlifts currently in place can take a maximum weight of 225kg.
