It is an exciting time to be joining the College. Our continuing results success highlights not only the high quality of our teaching and student experience but also the outstanding level of support we provide to students to help them achieve their goals. We are proud of the quality of teaching we provide, the individual attention and support every student receives and the progress that they make. This in turn has led to high levels of achievement which has enabled our students to successfully progress to university, apprenticeships, employment or other positive career choices at the end of their studies with us.

We have significantly invested to further develop our professional resources and facilities at our historic and beautiful waterfront campus. Within this environment we have the privilege of watching our students grow, develop and form friendships that last a lifetime.

May I wish you all the best with the remainder of your studies.

Why study at

St Vincent College?

Choosing a college isn’t easy and we don’t expect you to make the decision in a heartbeat, however, we can help you understand which path is right for you. It’s important to know you are not alone in the decision, we are here if you need guidance and support.

Here are some of the reasons why past students chose to study with us:

We recognise the power of learning outside of the classroom. Therefore, we provide students with a range of enrichment activities and trips to enhance your college experience. Be your interest sports, adventure, travel, languages, art, dance, theatre, computing and debating amongst others – St Vincent will provide you with opportunities to access a range of additional activities.

At St Vincent we set high expectations for our students and as such treat them as young adults. Like a school we have a strong pastoral framework but also provide you with the freedom and support to develop as an individual.

Every year our students achieve increasingly great results. This success has seen more students progress to university, more start their careers, and more undertake apprenticeships to support their development.

97% of our students progress to university, employment, apprenticeships or other positive progression pathways after leaving St Vincent.

We are experts in providing advice and support for university applicants and have staff dedicated to helping you with UCAS and personal statements. Our careers department will help you with choices and we regularly have visiting universities on site, giving out degree specific information and lecturing in subject areas. We can also help with looking for employment or finding an apprenticeship.  We run a programme of workshops on CV writing and interview skills and can help with work experience and volunteering opportunities. We host various higher education and employment events to enable our students to speak to university and employers about progression routes.

Whether it be our purpose built Learning Centre equipped with the latest IT, our student Study Hub, Quad, refectory, sports pitches or waterside creek, there is almost no end to the amazing facilities our students can access to study, work, research and spend time with friends.

Our teachers are specialists who not only have passion for their subjects but also a range of relevant experience in their fields of study. This does not only apply to our teachers, our support staff share our common goal of supporting students to succeed.
