Wakefield College Overview Image

We’ve been established since 1868 and since then we’ve been dedicated to giving our students the competence and confidence to achieve their ambitions. We offer excellent teaching and support, which is evident in this year’s A Level pass rate of 97%! It was the 11th year in succession to exceed 95%, with almost 14 A Level subjects achieving a 100% pass rate.

It’s an exciting time to be a student with us, as we continue to progress with the refurbishment and remodelling of Wakefield City Campus and Thornes Park Campus, the opening of our Sixth Form Centre at Crofton Academy and our new construction and sport provision at Lightwaves.

Our vast range of courses include A Levels, foundation degrees, top-up degrees, apprenticeships, and diplomas at a range of levels, so there’s bound to be one for you! We have specialist facilities for you, including the extensive resources of our new library, communal and informal learning spaces, specialist laboratories, and state-of-the-art facilities.

Great College with great tutors
by Amir - October 2014

I was on the A Level Business Studies course with Diane Morris as my tutor. The course was challenging yet enjoyable at the same time. Diane was a great teacher and the the methods she used proved highly effective as I came out with an A. The mixture of theory, practical, field trips and regular homework kept everyone on their toes and this ensured for a very useful overall experience as a student. 10/10

Level 3 Make-Up Artistry
by Jade - September 2014

I am a current student, who has attended the college for 3 years, I look forward to coming to college, as the course I am doing, is what I want to do. I enjoy the practical lessons, my tutors are so helpful and they ensure that I know what I am doing and I am at ease whilst I am working. It was the best and easiest choice I've made.

Level 3 Extended Diploma at Music at Wakefield
by owen - May 2014

The Course at Wakefield College is probably the best choice I could have made after high school. There is a healthy balance between academic learning and applying skills in performance. These skills help you develop social skills and organisation. The staff are all very competitent, friendly and helpful.I would recomend this course.

by joshua - May 2014

I think Wakefield college as a whole is a great place for all student's to learn and socialise. I do music at the Thornes Park campus and have had great support throughout all my work andf personal life from tutors and staff throughout the college. it also has a great support movement for the student which helps them learn how to socialise and help get jobs.
