Newbury College is the leading provider of vocational education for young people in West Berkshire. Vocational education is perfect for school leavers who want a more hands-on approach than the traditional academic route and we are working with local secondary schools to provide opportunities for KS4 pupils to explore future careers. 


 We are committed to supporting the local community through raising awareness and supporting good causes. As part of this, we have signed up to Good for Me, Good for FE, a nationwide campaign focused on people in the Further Education sector volunteering within and outside college communities, and developing corporate and charitable partnerships to sustain long-term impact. 

Your health, safety and wellbeing are our number one priority. We have implemented a number of measures, in line with government guidelines, to ensure that you, other students and our staff members remain safe.
