New College News

An Update
by Richard Fletcher, Thu, 10 Oct 2019 10:59

All students


I hope you are enjoying college life and are working in partnership with your subject teachers to ensure you are giving yourself the best possible chance of being successful. 


I also want to take this opportunity to remind you of a few important aspects of being a New College student:


  1. Please respect and value each other and look after the college facilities.
  2. Think of the local community when parking or being picked-up by parents.
  3. Use the student car park or Pontefract Collieries to park (only).
  4. Attend well, any missed lessons will result in gaps in your knowledge.
  5. Use the LRC and other study facilities to complete DIL in your free-time.
  6. Consider getting involved in any of the many enrichment opportunities available to you in college. Anything you do will look great on your personal statement when applying to university. How else are you going to make yourself stand out from the crowd?


Continue to work hard and enjoy the build up to Christmas.


Best wishes

Last night’s Open Evening was incredibly busy and extremely successful. Much of this success was down to the enthusiastic, welcoming and mature approach of our Y12 student ambassadors. Well done! You all did a fantastic job and it was a real privilege to see you represent the College in such a positive and professional manner.

Welcome Back
by Richard Fletcher, Tue, 03 Sep 2019 19:08

Welcome back all students

I hope you have had a really enjoyable summer break and are ready for the challenge ahead. Whether you are in Y12, Y13 or resitting your GCSEs you will appreciate that the coming college year will play a significant role in determining your future and how successful you are likely to be.

My advice is to embrace college life, take all opportunities given and work really hard. You only have one chance to study level 3 qualifications so make sure you take this amazing opportunity.

Best wishes

A-level Students

I just want to wish all students taking exams this summer the very best of luck. I strongly believe you will get out what you have put in so only you can decide that. Fingers crossed!

BTEC Students

Most of the hard work should have been completed by now and you will be aware of what grades you are likely to achieve. I’m hoping the majority of you will have secured Distinctions and above.

Best wishes
