Cheshire College - South & West · Education · Based in Crewe
Company Profile
Cheshire College - South & West is one of the UK's top colleges and was confirmed as a 'Good' College by Ofsted in February 2016. South Cheshire College and West Cheshire College merged on 31 March 2017 and has since re-branded and re-launched with a new website.

We offer a full range of courses including A-Levels, vocational programmes, work-related training, apprenticeships, Higher Education, leisure and vocational courses.

The College is the home of post-16 education in Crewe and Nantwich and is located on a single campus situated in a residential area about one and a half miles from Crewe town centre.

Students are attracted to the College from throughout South and East Cheshire, notably Crewe, Nantwich, Alsager, Middlewich, Sandbach and Congleton but also from areas further-a-field such as Stoke-on-Trent and Shropshire.

The College provides education in the main for 16 to 19 year-olds but also offers a range of courses for adults, many of who are returning to education after a long break, and apprenticeships and other work related training programmes which are very beneficial to employers across the region.

Cheshire College - South & West prides itself on excellent results year after year and constantly achieves results well above the national average.

In 2015, the College announced a 99.7% pass rate for A-Levels and a 98% pass rate for BTEC Level 3 courses.

At the College, we have developed strong links with educational institutions around the world in countries such as China, Thailand, Greece, Italy, Spain and Germany through our international programmes.

As a result, students from these countries come to the College to study A-Levels, vocational programmes and other shorter courses and students are being housed with local families throughout their stay through the College’s ‘Homestay’ programme.

Cheshire College - South & West has strong links with Oxford University and is the Pembroke North hub for the University’s Pembroke College.

It is also home to the North West Science Network in partnership with the University of Oxford’s Corpus Christi College and Pembroke Colleges.

College students work closely with the University of Oxford through the Honours and Raising Aspirations programmes which provide opportunities for personal and academic achievement and gives students the competitive edge they need when applying to the most prestigious universities in the country.

The College has achieved the acclaimed STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) status and it has also received numerous other awards including Beacon Status which recognises excellent institutions that deliver high quality teaching and learning.

In 2006 and 2007, the College was named in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list, finishing 61st in 2006 and 58th in 2007.

The College has some of the finest further education facilities in the country, after the campus was completely rebuilt on the same site, before re-opening to staff and students in September 2010.

A huge sports arena, theatre, state-of-the-art workshops, three-storey library and café outlets are just some of the wonderful facilities that make Cheshire College - South & West a wonderful environment to come and study in.

We promote quality teaching and learning in a supportive environment. We aim to respond flexibly to the educational and training needs of our communities, anticipating, identifying and satisfying these needs efficiently and effectively.
