About our Colleges

New College Pontefract


Principal:       Richard Fletcher

Address:        Park Lane, Pontefract, WF8 4QR

New College Pontefract is an outstanding college, regularly near the top of UK Sixth Form College results tables and awarded outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2014. With over 2300 students, New College Pontefract is the founding member of the New Collaborative Learning Trust (NCLT).

New College Pontefract delivers primarily A Level provision, alongside a number of Level 3 BTEC qualifications and some Level 2 provision.

New College Doncaster


Principal:       Brendon Fletcher

Address:        Hurst Lane, Auckley, Doncaster, DN9 3HG

New College Doncaster will open in September 2017 with 400-450 Year 12 students, growing to over 1000 students by September 2019. This is an exciting new venture, creating a sister college to the well-established New College Pontefract, rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, replicating its ethos, values and practices. The two colleges will work closely, presenting exciting opportunities for collaboration, support, development and progression.

In a brand new campus New College Doncaster will primarily deliver A Levels, alongside a number of Level 3 BTEC qualifications.

New College Bradford


The college is scheduled to open in September 2019, so our first intake of students are currently in Year 9. Recruitment and IAG interviews will start from September 2017, and we will be recruiting a Principal in 2018.

There has been a lot of activity behind the scenes recently. We have met with many key stakeholders in education across Bradford, building productive working relationships, and many have already begun collaborating with us further.

We are currently planning the budget and estate requirements to ensure they meet the needs of Bradford’s young people. We expect to have a site near the centre of the city, which will probably be a new build.
