We are the fourth largest college group in the UK with campuses across Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Redbridge, Epping Forest and Havering. Be assured though, that whilst we have increased in size and scale, we retain our strong local identities and our campuses in each borough, continuing to provide a strong choice of courses for our communities.

Throughout the year we hold a number of open days, welcome events and taster days at all of our campuses and I hope you will be able to come along and find out more about us and talk to our teachers and students. We are proud of all our students and the success they achieve and you will join a college that will support you and drive you at every stage so that you do achieve your very best.

If you are looking to go onto university, we send over 600 students a year, including many to Russell Group ones including Cambridge, UCL, King’s College and Queen Mary as well as others outside of London. If you are looking to progress to work instead, we have relationships with many leading businesses in London and have helped our students secure highly sought after apprenticeships in businesses like KPMG, Thomson Reuters, Accenture and Lyle and Scott.

I look forward to meeting you at one of our future events and in the meantime, please enjoy browsing our website, finding out about our courses and college culture and I do hope you will apply to study with us.

It will be the best decision you can make.
