About Us

Great People, Great Place!

We are rated Grade 2 “GOOD” by Ofsted which also acknowledged our excellent student behaviour and friendly atmosphere.  We have strong partnerships with employers and other organisations which helps us offer the highest level of education and training to successfully meet the needs of the local community. 

Following a full inspection in 2013, Ofsted carried out a short inspection update in the autumn term of 2016, and another in January 2020. They confirmed that as a provider we continue to be GOOD.

Shipley College is a small, friendly place that really cares about every person that comes through the door and we pride ourselves on giving every student the individual support they deserve.

Situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire, it is a great place to study and easy to get to by bus, train and car.

Whether you are a school leaver, mature student or employer, I am confident we will provide excellent opportunities to develop skills and qualifications. 

Our practical, vocational and work-related courses include Apprenticeships, full-time and part-time courses across a range of sectors.

I am delighted that our Student Survey results and employer feedback continue to be extremely positive as we provide a fantastic learning environment for all our students.

I am proud of the commitment and hard work of all the college’s staff, students and governors and pleased that this has been recognised by Ofsted in our latest inspection.
