From A Levels to apprenticeships, vocational courses to higher education – there’s something for everyone.  

Our five colleges boast excellent, modern facilities including specialist workshops, professional training restaurants, salons, science labs, equestrian centres, domestic and exotic animals and more. There’s been recent investment and renovation across all campuses. 

You will be given the opportunity to excel and succeed in your learning by our well-qualified and highly professional teachers. 

The vast majority of our students progress to higher level courses, including university studies, and then into employment. 

The College is rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, with our students’ attitudes and behaviours ‘outstanding’. 

Timetables are structured to fit in with the demands of young people living in our rural communities, and our students consistently report high levels of satisfaction.
