Newcastle-under-Lyme College

 

Newcastle-under-Lyme College

Newcastle-under-Lyme College is a further education college in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England. The current Principal is Karen Dobson.

The college is housed in a new campus on Knutton Lane and offers academic and vocational courses. The new campus contains an HE centre with connections to Staffordshire University, and sports and engineering facilities.

The college was formed as a tertiary college in 1986. However, curriculum provision has now broadened to such an extent and includes a wide range of community and outreach work, university access programmes and adult education that the term “general further education” college better describes its business.

Newcastle-under-Lyme is a North Staffordshire town with a population of 123,100, although the conurbation of Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme, together with the Staffordshire Moorlands, accounts for a population of more than 500,000 and it is from this wider catchment area that the College draws the majority of its students.
