For many years, Halesowen College has held a reputation for high standards, an excellent learning environment and a caring, supportive sense of community. It offers exceptional support and opportunities for students making the transition from school to higher education or the career of their choice. It is conveniently located with extensive travel networks, so you can get to college and return home with ease.

Halesowen College appears consistently in the top 10% of colleges for examination performance. Its last Ofsted Inspection reported many strengths, including good academic support, leadership and the fact that all students are valued.

All students are treated as individuals for achieving their potential and gaining a sound foundation for the future.

In association with its long-standing partnerships with the University of Worcester and Newman University, it is committed to increasing participation and progression routes to higher education for the local community.

The College’s University Centre is an important step in extending pathways for students who would not otherwise be able to attain higher qualifications. It puts in place some outstanding facilities that allow students to tap into higher education study in the locality and utilise digital resources.

Students in the second year of advanced programmes are able to embark on selected undergraduate units with partner universities to help prepare them for the transition to higher education.
