Why go anywhere else? You have one of the best colleges in the country on your doorstep!
Don’t just take our word for it! Latest Government data from the Department for Education’s schools’ and colleges’ performance tables, published January 2014, confirms:
Nelson and Colne College is the BEST in this area for A Level grades!
This includes all grammar schools, colleges, school sixth forms and sixth form centres within Pendle, Burnley, Blackburn, Accrington and the Ribble Valley.
Nelson and Colne is the 4th highest performing college in the whole country for A Level grades!
From 317 colleges, sixth forms and sixth form centres
Nelson and Colne College’s students’ A Level grades are better than (or very close to) the local independent and private schools!
This fantastic news builds on last year’s success when we were named top college in the country for A Level Value Added scores. Value Added measures are just as crucial as pass rates and high grades, they look at the final results a student is awarded in College and compares them to the GCSE grades they achieved at school.
Which means that our students exceed their potential!
