Accrington and Rossendale College

Tuesday 9 October saw Accrington Town Hall become a busy hive of activity as former students of Accrington and Rossendale celebrated their outstanding achievements with an Awards and Graduation Ceremony.  Wendy Higgin, Vice Principal at Accrington and Rossendale College, opened up the evening welcoming students and tutors to the event, with Assistant Principal, Charlotte Scheffmann, taking to the stage afterwards to share the highlights of Higher Education at the college over the last academic year.

Accrington and Rossendale College have partnered up with Spacious Place to refurbish and revitalise the Waterloo Pub in Burnley - the first project of its kind in Lancashire.

The Construction Academy based at the college, made up of a team of Plasterers, Joiners, Painting and Decorators and Bricklayers, will be working on the site one day a week for a year as a means to gain real-life working experience. There are 17 individuals participating in the project, who will see it out from start to completion in 2019.

As thousands around the country are set to receive their GCSE results this Thursday 23 August, Accrington and Rossendale College are calling out for students to set off on the next stage of their studying journey in the heart of #AmazingAccrington at their Ofsted GOOD rated college campus.

Why Accrington and Rossendale College?

Year 5 pupils from Peel Park Primary School celebrated their bright futures with a graduation ceremony at Accrington and Rossendale College.

The event took place to congratulate the 89 year-5 pupils; who have taken part in a series of workshops at the college during the last term. The workshops were designed to highlight the huge variety of careers they can choose from. The children have been testing their skills at everything from cooking to CSI style investigations!
