Barnsley College is rated as ‘outstanding’ and is known as one of the best Colleges in the UK by Ofsted, the independent UK education inspection agency. This is an accolade which reflects the performance of teachers and students, as well as the exceptionally high quality of our courses and resources. Over 6,500 students study with us either full or part time, and our goal is to help them achieve their full potential. We currently have students from over 70 nationalities attending our courses. The College has also been awarded the prestigious Beacon Status from the UK Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), and this is confirmation of our exemplary teaching and learning practice. Our College also has a wide range of facilities, including a food court and high quality restaurant (Zest!), coffee bars, a gift shop, a gym and fitness centre, AstroTurf sport pitches and a whole host more. It’s an inspiring environment in which to learn and develop lifelong friendships.
