Accrington and Rossendale College
Following the merger with Nelson and Colne College in November 2018, we have commenced a £4 million refurbishment of the College estate. This investment will see new innovative student spaces including a fully-modernised Learning Resource Centre, new dedicated study zones, a purpose-built Learner Services and Careers Zone, and outdoor landscaping. Our newly developed College will ensure students have access to the best facilities in an environment fit for developing talented young people for years to come.
We recently saw a huge leap in achievement rates at Accrington and Rossendale College. The College is now in the top ten colleges in the country for 16-18 Apprenticeship achievement, and for 16-18 classroom learner achievement at Level 3.
We have high ambitions for the future and will reap the benefits of outstanding performance from shared practice with our sister college, Nelson and Colne, who are a beacon for education excellence across the country. Our vision for our College will be achieved by combining phenomenal teaching, excellent facilities, the offer of exceptional work placement opportunities and a first-class extracurricular programme. This will all contribute towards our students achieving their full potential, and developing and stretching their abilities and knowledge.
We are one of the leading education establishments in the country, and we are right on your doorstep.
We look forward to welcoming you into College at one of our Open Events, where you will begin your journey towards your extraordinary.
