Welcome to Brooklands College
Welcome to Brooklands College a Further Education college based on two campuses, one in leafy Weybridge and the other in Ashford, close to Heathrow Airport. We are proud to be one of Surrey’s largest providers of vocational training and further and Higher Education. Our course offering is diverse and our teaching excels, with students travelling long distances to benefit from the Brooklands College experience. The support we provide for our students is also second to none and well recognised as one of our key drivers for success.
We have been building on the college’s established expertise and developing our provision to meet the constantly changing demands of the local, regional and national economies. The college was also awarded ‘Good’ by Ofsted after the college’s December 2013 inspection; I am very pleased with this achievement and quoting from the report Ofsted which said that ‘Vocational students achieve well, developing good practical and technical skills to support progression to higher levels of study or employment.’ I am happy to see that once leaving Brooklands College our students are going on to develop their careers or further studies. Our Catering and Hospitality curriculum area also obtained an ‘Outstanding’ grade which is testament to the hard work and focus of the teaching staff and the students they teach.
Exciting times lie ahead for Brooklands as our plan is to continue to develop the courses offered on both campuses. We have a forward looking programme with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) across all curriculum provision from Sport to Healthcare. Much of this will take place in partnership with local and national employers. We have ambitious development programmes for both campuses which will see our campus facilities improve and the student experience widen.
Our students leave us with qualifications and skills that stand them in good stead for a place at University, a job or further professional or vocational studies to enhance their careers.
Our aim is to be ‘Outstanding Every Day’ in every aspect of our work. Whatever your aims, Brooklands College can help you achieve them.
We already have strong vocational programmes for full time students and most recently we have fast tracked our apprenticeship programme, with new pathways being developed to suit the needs of local and regional employers.
