The Community College is an exciting and stimulating place to learn, one that treats all students as individuals, challenges and actively supports them, and provides the widest range of educational opportunities possible. It is a safe and tolerant society, which operates on the basis of mutual respect, with high expectations of conduct, a high regard for moral courage and teamwork. It is a place that supports, and is supported by its local community, but seeks to develop students’ understanding of the wider world where creativity, adventure and new ideas are encouraged. We believe the best way to prepare our young people for the future is to encourage high aspirations, help them achieve outstanding results and develop the necessary skills and attributes to be the best that they can be.
