New College Bradford already making an impact

Bradford’s first sixth form college, New College Bradford, is already making an impact on the local community. Building works began this autumn, with the five-storey building on track for completion before the September 2019 opening. The building on Nelson Street, the first educational establishment in Bradford built exclusively for 16-19 year-olds, will provide teaching and learning space for 1200 student when it reaches full capacity.

The building works are not the only way New College Bradford is making an impact. The college has already received 800 applications from young people in the region keen to access high quality A-Level and Level 3 BTEC teaching. The closing date for applications is February 22nd, and students are encouraged to apply by then to avoid missing out on the chance to study their first-choice subjects.

Stuart Nash, New College Bradford Principal, said “Following on from our very well attended Open Day event at the end of September, our first admissions interview evening was a similar success. Our specialist team of advisers interviewed and conditionally offered places at New College Bradford to over 250 students in a whole range of A-level and BTEC subjects. Securing a place at an outstanding college like New College Bradford could be the first step in a student’s journey to realising their true potential. We will be holding three more interview evenings over the next few months, so it is imperative that students apply before February 22nd to guarantee themselves a place.”

The college’s next open day is on Saturday January 19th, from 9am-12pm. Full details of this and the application procedure can be found on the college’s website, www.ncbradford.ac.uk.
