The College

Newcastle-under-Lyme College is a highly successful college in North Staffordshire, with pass rates and student success levels amongst the best in the country.

We provide a wide range of academic and vocational qualifications from entry to degree level, along with the support services to help you achieve your goals. 

The College has grown significantly over the past 10 years and is currently home to a population of over 3,800 full-time students and around 350 students on higher education programmes. We have over 2,600 part-time or adult learners, and 1,400 apprentices where we work with around 800 individual employers.

Outstanding Facilities

In January 2010, we opened the doors to our £60 million campus, which we believe offers members of staff, students and the public, college facilities amongst the best available anywhere in the country. Our new £5.5 million performing arts centre opened in early 2015, and opened a 46 bed outdoor learning centre at Gradbach in the Peak District in 2016.  We have also invested £60,000 on a fantastic new LEGO® Education Innovation Studio. We worked closely with LEGO® Education to create this dynamic tool to help support learners of all ages and teachers. To find out more and book your school in, please click here.
