Dr Alison Birkinshaw OBE, Principal and Chief Executive:

At York College we have a very simple ambition: we want you to be happy and successful during your time with us. We know that you will have your dreams and ambitions and it is a real privilege to work with you to help you realise these.

Students tell us they enjoy their time with us and they are pleased they made the transition from school to College. In the words of one:

"York College is a great place to study and I have loved every minute of my time here as it’s much more of an adult environment and the tutors are really friendly and approachable. Despite the fact that there is a big gap between GCSE and A Levels, there is a lot of support available to ensure all students get the help they need.  I feel like York College has broadened my horizons and prepared me for my future." - Victoria Howdle, A Level student

We are extremely proud of our students and their individual success stories. I look forward to welcoming you to the College and to working with you to ensure you leave as successful adults able to meet future challenges with confidence.
