Welcome to Salford City College, one of the largest and most successful colleges in the North West.
We are a Beacon Status college, awarded for delivering outstanding teaching and learning, whose mission
is "to inspire and empower people to create and take opportunities to enrich lives through learning".
The college has 4 superb centres for young students: Pendleton, City, Eccles and Walkden Sixth Form Centres,
each of which has its own Centre Principal. In 2013 we will also be opening our new FutureSkills@MediaCityUK
centre that will focus on preparing students for employment in specific sectors. All of our centres have the same
outstanding quality of teaching and learning and you can be assured that we are committed to every student being
In 2012, the college achieved an A-Level pass rate of over 99% and 100% Advanced Vocational pass rate.
In addition, our students gained a record number of high grades in their exams. This adds to the history of success
that our students have achieved. This success is down to our commitment to ensure that students are put on the
right course and are given support and guidance that they need in order to achieve. Our tutors have fantastic
industry links and we are able to offer students unique opportunities that will give them that extra edge when
applying for university, employment or apprenticeships.
In 2011/2012 there were a number of highlights for our students. These have included our students showcasing
at WorldSkillsUK, gaining places at Oxford and Cambridge, as well as some of the top drama and dance schools in
the country. We have also had a record number of guest speakers come into the college to do workshops and give
advice to students.
I am very proud of Salford City College, its students and staff. The college continues to go from strength to strength.
We ensure that every student is treated as an individual, working to their full potential and receiving the very highest
level of teaching and support.
The college has a fantastic reputation, not only in Greater Manchester but throughout the North West.
Our first class facilities provide students with a great learning experience in which to study.

I look forward to welcoming you soon.
