East Riding College welcomes more than 1,600 full-time students every year, with thousands more taking apprenticeships, part-time and higher education courses. Our main campuses are in the beautiful historic market town of Beverley and the popular coastal resort of Bridlington in the East Riding of Yorkshire, with a smaller site in Hull.
We are an ambitious College, with a strong desire to improve the high standard of teaching we provide and the campuses our students attend. Having opened a new campus at in Bridlington in 2009, and with our new Beverley campus now open, we are one of the best equipped Colleges nationally.
When the College was last inspected, in February 2011, it was rated by Ofsted as good with many outstanding features, including its care, guidance and support for students, its leadership and management and capacity to improve further. Students were described as making "exceptional progress" with staff being "ambitious for the College and relentless in their pursuit of seeking improvements for learners." See inspection reports for more information.
