Boston College is situated close to the town centre of Boston with four campuses in close proximity to each other, as well as a campus in the heart of Spalding.
At the main campus, Rochford, you will find the dedicated sixth form centre and University Centre along with workshops and industry styled classrooms of our vocational courses. Peter Paine Performance Centre is the College's sports centre and Sam Newsom Centre is a dedicated music and performing arts centre. The Ingelow Centre is Boston College's Foundation (Entry/SEND) purpose built building.
For over 50 years, Boston College has been providing high quality education to thousands of students over the age of 16.
We pride ourselves on our mission to transform people’s lives through delivering excellence in everything that we do, inspiring our learners, the community and region we serve to achieve together.
We are currently investing over £9 million into our campuses and student facilities in order to support this mission and provide the highest quality student experience.
Our excellent links with industry, coupled with specialist facilities, and skilled staff will help you to prepare for your chosen career. We offer a suite of study programmes tailored to meet individual student needs, a range of apprenticeships designed by employers and have a growing reputation for academic excellence in Higher Education. Our extensive course offer from entry to degree level means that at Boston College we aim to have the right course for you.
Over 95% of our students have consistently rated teaching as excellent or good at college for the last 3 years and this is supported by our high quality student experience. Ofsted recognised Boston College’s high standards of provision, performance and quality of teaching during their last inspection and confirmed the College’s ‘Good’ status, making it one of the best performing providers of post-16 education in the area. The report concluded that the College has maintained, and improved, the high standards found at the previous inspection with aspects of performance described as “life-changing”.
We offer much more than qualifications, our students gain practical experience, learning in real-life working environments and we have outstanding levels of student support. With award-winning careers guidance services and a fantastic team of lecturers who are subject specialists with industry experience, it really is a great time to join us.
We take pride in preparing our learners well for their next steps by supporting them to be successful – part of this involves developing their resilience and wellbeing. Our Learner Services Team have been working with the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust on our innovative ‘Be Brilliant – Building Resilience and Wellbeing’ project which, is about to move into its second year of delivery.
The College welcomes students from a diverse range of backgrounds and our culture is one of respect and inclusion that transcends everything we do. We encourage our students to aim high and we are skilled at getting the best from every individual. At Boston College, we believe in the standards of hard work, passion, enthusiasm and excellence.
I look forward to welcoming you to our college soon.
