Our focus on quality has made us the number one college in London for 16-18 achievement.

We are a further education college and specialise in 16-18 education as well as offering courses all the way up to university level at our Uxbridge and Hayes campuses and at our sister institution Harrow College.

Our tutors undergo professional training just like their counterparts in schools.

In addition, they come to us with real world industry experience if they are teaching vocational subjects. This ensures that your son or daughter will receive the good quality education they would expect in school but backed up by the tutor’s real-world knowledge of the subject.

This balance is created very deliberately to ensure students have the best chance of succeeding when the time comes for them to apply their learning in a workplace.

They may alternatively decide to progress to our higher education courses or take their education even further. Many of our students go on to universities, including Oxford.

Our vocational courses cover a very wide range of careers. We have a dedicated sixth form centre for A-Levels and GCSEs so students can enjoy the college experience but with the advantage of learning in a smaller-scale environment of the kind they might expect at school.

We have recently spent £65m in new and modernised facilities including plumbing workshops, theatre and box office, dance studios, art studio, IT & media block, sports hall, fitness suite and social spaces.

Safeguarding and Prevent
