Welcome to York College. We have a very simple ambition: we want you to be happy and successful during your time with us. We also want to bridge the gap between what you are now and what you could be. We know that you will have your dreams and ambitions and it is a real privilege to work with you to help you realise these. We will do everything possible to provide:
• the individual support students need to achieve and progress
• high quality teaching with qualified, knowledgeable and experienced staff
• the best facilities in the region
• an environment where students feel safe, happy and healthy
• a valuable range of out of classroom activities to suit all interests.
Students tell us they enjoy their time with us and they are pleased they made the transition from school to college. They have made new and lasting friendships and they value the way they are treated as adults. Students also tell us how much they appreciate the support our staff give them. York College students go on to achieve great things and lead exciting and fulfilling lives. In the words of one: “I chose York College because it had a very good reputation, a wide range of subjects and a good learning environment. I’ve had a very positive experience at College with tutors being helpful and supportive. The help I received when deciding which subjects to choose was fantastic and the College atmosphere is extremely positive.” (A Level student 2009 – 2011) We are extremely proud of our students and their individual success stories. We are also very proud of what they go on to achieve once they leave us. I look forward to welcoming you to the College and to working with you to ensure you leave as successful adults able to meet future challenges with confidence.
