Unlike many colleges, we have a single site, set in 70 acres of Surrey green belt in a peaceful setting and providing a safe learning environment - yet the campus is only 30 minutes away from central London by train (with a station conveniently located next to the College). We are only 15 minutes from the M25 and offer a large free on-site car park.
The College is dynamic and ambitious and aims to move towards ‘Outstanding’. With our Principal at the helm and a new management team the College has made great strides forward in all areas. In 2010 Ofsted rated Nescot as Outstanding for Leadership, Management, Capacity to Improve, Care & Support for Students, Tutorials, Enrichment, Safeguarding and Financial Management.
