    • Our community goes beyond the City and our 4,500 students study with us from all parts of East Kent.

      In 2017, the college was judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted and is going from strength to strength. It has facilities that we are very proud of and in which we will continue to invest, to ensure our students learn in environments with expert staff who give them the edge in the employment market. Canterbury College is a place which students aspire to attend and choose as an alternative to sixth form. It is also seen as a progression opportunity for those studying at other colleges within EKC Group.

      We are working alongside key local employers and partners such as Canterbury City Council, Barretts, Canterbury Cathedral and the Marlowe Theatre to provide our students with the best opportunities for employer engagement, and to enable Canterbury College to be at the heart of the City’s future development.
