New City College is the dynamic group of further education colleges in East London which comprises Tower Hamlets College, Hackney Community College and Redbridge College. All colleges in the group are graded Good by Ofsted, and our 3-college merger places the group at the forefront of further education in the region. With a turnover of £67m, 20,000 students and 1000 staff it is one of the strongest and most influential further education organisations in the country. 

Our college environment is second to none. We have industry standard facilities and equipment at all campuses, expert staff and partnerships with other high profile organisations which all prepare students for progression to higher education or successful careers.

East London is dynamic, innovative and entrepreneurial. As we develop our longer term vision, we will continue to ensure that we invest in our staff and other resources to provide a distinctive offer and excellent, supportive learning environment which meets the needs of students and employers and prepares local people for the changing workforce of the area. 

Since September 2014 the college has been offering a full-time programme for students at KS4 who have recently arrived to the UK. All student’s access differentiated KS4 subjects with a large ESOL input and they require support and supervision in class and also at lunch times and break times.  

In May 2016, the college expanded its 14-16 provision to include vulnerable and disengaged students who are at risk of exclusion from their mainstream school.
