Our central aim is to prepare students for higher education or the world of work, whilst at the same time providing a warm and friendly atmosphere in which to learn. We are one of the largest colleges in north London, providing a wide range of academic and vocational courses, many of which are directly linked to local employers and universities. And our curriculum is as diverse as our students; from GCSEs and A Levels to professional qualifications and Higher Education, from basic maths and literacy to vocational training, in everything from construction to hairdressing.

The College actively encourages and helps students to be independent and responsible for their own future success; receiving expert guidance on potential career options, further education and employment opportunities. Our wide range of higher level and professional courses means that your child also has future progression opportunities within the College if it suits them better to stay within their local, friendly environment rather than university. Come along to one of our open days, ask any questions, or find out more about a particular course.
