Principal’s Welcome

We are proud. Yeovil College is the ‘top performing College’ in Somerset*; we have achieved a 100% A Level pass rate for the third successive year; the majority of our vocational qualifications have achieved a 100% pass rate and our Apprenticeships are growing at an expediential rate. We even have our very own University Centre here on campus, which delivers quality university-level education.

To summarise – we are ranked in the top 10% of Colleges in the country.

Our number one priority is to maximise potential for all, and in doing so, giving our students the right skills and knowledge to take them through their career journeys. Yeovil College is an aspirational, positive and an inclusive place to learn. Not only do our students experience outstanding teaching and learning, but they are supported in every way, whether that’s a financial, welfare or academic need.

Our teachers are the best. Industry experts and business practitioners teach our classes. We employ some of the most experienced teachers within the sector, as well as welcoming visiting lecturers from industry to deliver sector-specific masterclasses.

Sometimes students, both school leavers and adult learners, simply need a second chance, and Yeovil College provides the time and space to do it.

We are focused on giving our students real-life experiences and opportunities to prepare them for the world of work. Students leaving Yeovil College do so equipped with the right skills, knowledge, behaviour and attitude to exceed within their chosen career. Students have the opportunity to put theory into practice, whether that’s in one of our real-world learning environments here on campus, through an industry placement, or through one of our employer partnerships.

Our campus is one of our strengths. Not only will you find an environment which is clean and tidy, but our students are well-behaved and respectful. Poor behaviour is neither accepted nor tolerated at Yeovil College. We boast many fantastic industry standard workshops, restaurants and working environments. We have recently opened two ultra-modern, state-of-the-art spaces – the Screwfix Trade Skills Centre and our student-led Da Vinci Restaurant. And this is just the beginning!

We have significant ambition for our campus which will see it grow and expand over the coming years. Watch this space!

Our website will give you a flavour of what student life will be like at Yeovil College, but don’t worry if you’re still not sure. Our staff are on hand to support you and offer you the right advice and guidance. Why not come along to our next Information Evening events or join in a Pleased to meet you taster session.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
