Uxbridge College is gearing up for its 50th year of success by grabbing the No. 1 spot in London for both 16-18 year olds and students age 19 and above.

Uxbridge College is ranked out of a total of 30 London colleges in the Education and Training National Success Rate Tables, which were published by the Skills Funding Agency in April. The tables cover success rates in classroom-based qualifications including in science, engineering, computing, business and the creative arts.

Laraine Smith OBE, Principal of Uxbridge College, said: “We are really excited to find ourselves top of these London rankings as we look forward to a year of celebrations for our Golden Anniversary.

“With our 50th year of success on the agenda, it is certainly fitting that we are No. 1 in London for these two very important student groups.”

The College, which celebrates its golden anniversary in the next academic year, hit the top spot with an 84.1% success rate for 16-18 year olds and 90.3% for students age 19 and above. The figures, published this month, relate to the academic year 2013-14.
