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.

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

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..
