Join our EdYOUcation

Hey, how are you? We're really glad that you've found us.

You'll soon be ready to make choices about the subjects and place you'd like to study after school - and that's awesome.

To help you with those choices, we've put together this dedicated page, filled with information about our college, courses and our EdYOUcation philosophy.

Scroll down to see how we can help you build a better you.

We look forward to meeting you soon

...whether it is in person or virtually! In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to find out more about college tours, please get in touch with our School Liaison team.

The start of the new academic year has been like no other. We would usually come to your school to tell you a little more about what's on offer at our college. But as we can't visit yet, we've recorded a short video for you to watch. We hope you enjoy it.

Can we be honest with you for a second?

The past few months have been hard. We've all struggled. But now we're looking forward.

Why don't you join us and look forward too?

College is about studying, learning, developing, and growing. You'll be able to choose from the widest range of A-Levels, Vocational and T-Level courses anywhere in the local area.

But studying at college is a given, right? You can study at any college, but at our college, we put you at the centre of everything we do. Let us explain...

We have revolutionised our courses, so you learn essential skills and you're ready to evolve in this continually changing world. We will inspire you inside and outside the classroom, motivate you to do your best, and help you set new ambitions.

We will encourage you to take action and stand up for the things you believe in, you will be included and be a part of our college community, and we'll celebrate your successes with you.

We are more than education. We are EdYOUcation.

Virtual Open Events

We know that coming to have a look around and being able to meet our tutors is an important part of your decision-making process.

On Wednesday 14th October we launched videos about our Hastings courses.

On Wednesday 21st October we premiered films about our courses in Lewes.

Don't just take our word for it
