Annually the College delivers education and training to 13,500 students ranging in age from 14-16, 16-18, 19 years and above. Delivery spans all education routes including GCSEs and A Levels, professional and technical education, apprenticeships, higher education and commercial activity.

We have also achieved TEF Silver for our Higher education teaching and learning. We are Matrix Accredited for our IAG Services and work closely with the NE LEP to embed the Gatsby Good Career Benchmarks across the region. The College has also recently achieved Continuing Excellence for the Better Health at Work Award.
