A High Performing Specialist Academy for Technology & Applied Learning

Principal's Welcome

Our vision for Collingwood is to be the College of first choice for all our parents and we are currently on a journey to move from Ofsted Good to Outstanding!

Collingwood College is committed to developing responsible, aspirational, independent, happy and well-rounded young people with the self-belief to reach their goals.

Our students are the focus of everything we do.  We have found that by listening to students’ views and offering them the opportunity to work with each other, staff and governors, they are an integral part of our relentless drive for improvement.

Collingwood College offers all students an inclusive, flexible and stimulating educational experience.  With a strong emphasis on personal development and a very wide range of leadership opportunities and extra-curricular activities, we are able to offer challenges that motivate and appeal to all individuals.

Our academic performance is consistently high and in recent years students have achieved excellent results at pre and post 16 level.  In 2021, the percentage of students who gained 5+ good passes at GCSE was 81% and in the sixth form 59% of qualifications were at A*-B (or equivalent).  This continued level of success is down to the hard work of our students and their teachers.  Our outstanding team of Department Heads work alongside a dedicated pastoral team, to ensure that students are fully supported and prepared for the next stage in their education and employment.  There are so many reasons why we are proud to lead Collingwood forward!  Contact us to arrange a visit so that we can show you why!
