About Woking College
Woking College is an oversubscribed and highly successful college of 1400 students serving the Borough of Woking, but drawing students from over 60 different schools. Our very successful strategic focus has, for many years, been to facilitate the very best quality of teaching and learning for our students. We are inclusive and non-selective and we are fully committed to continuing this successful strategy which has resulted in the doubling of the student population in recent years.
Woking College is enjoying record results, very positive value-added and an abundance of applications and quite rightly has a teaching and learning environment of which we all are very proud. Despite ever increasing competition, and against the backdrop of funding pressures across the sector, the College continues to thrive. The College has benefited hugely from an impressive transformation of its estate over recent years, with the completion of a new Sports Centre in 2014, a new Arts Block in 2015 and a modern and larger Science Building in 2016.
We recognise the advantages of collaboration and have worked hard over the years to build and maintain close working relationships with other education providers and the Local Authority. The College has been a long standing member of S7, the Surrey and Sussex group of Sixth Form Colleges, of which Woking College's Principal, Brett Freeman, I am the Chair, and we look forward to continued positive engagement with schools, colleges and the local community for the benefit of all. With strong leadership from our passionate and committed senior leadership team, and with the support of excellent teaching and support staff across all areas, we look forward to the continued evolution of the College; we also look forward to meeting committed, engaging and passionate people who want to join us to further enhance the life-chances of our students.
