The Corporation – The College’s Board of Governors have a crucial role: They make the ‘big’ decisions. That is, they determine the range of education provided, set key goals and hold college management to account for delivering on these.
They have determined the College’s ‘Mission’ as follows:
We believe education changes lives, so we put teaching and learning and the needs of our students first.
Governors seek to ensure that the College provides a high-quality learning experience which enables students to succeed and which meets the needs of the community. They, therefore, provide a ‘bridge’ between the college and the community we serve.

High Level College Goals 2020/21:
The college’s high level strategy is to meet the needs of its community and to be a fantastic place to study and work. For the year ahead, we have identified three key priorities for the college as a whole:
1. Continuing our journey to “Excellence Everywhere” so that we can be sure that all of our learners are benefitting from “outstanding” educational experiences;
2. Further improving and extending external partnerships so that we can even better (identify and) meet the needs of our community;
3. Further improving our estate & facilities so that all staff and students can enjoy the benefits of a high-quality (and high-tech) work/learning environment.
Professional advice and services to the Governing Body are provided by the Head of Governance / Clerk to the Corporation. The Head of Governance is independent of the College.
