Welcome to Brockenhurst College

Hello and a warm welcome on behalf of all the staff here at Brockenhurst College.
As you will know, further education is the next important step towards achieving your ambitions. It’s a challenging time, but also an
exciting time, and we’re here to give you all the help and support you need.
When you choose us you are choosing an institution that not only excels at offering diversity in qualifications, but also diversity within subjects, helping you focus on the specific areas that interest you.

About us

Our provision is delivered within a friendly, inclusive and stimulating environment where everyone is encouraged and enabled to fulfil their potential and realise their ambitions.

We are the first choice sixth form for more than 3,000 school leavers across the region; their success is evidenced as they progress to higher education and a range of careers, locally, nationally and internationally. Our students’ consistently high results and progression to top universities stands testimony to our academic excellence, endorsed by our Ofsted rating.

To meet the needs of all our students, we also offer vocationally-based higher education courses that lead to employment opportunities, enhance promotion within current employment or lead to additional HE study at university. Higher Education provision reflects local needs and offers a real opportunity for students to obtain cost-effective higher level qualifications in a well-supported learning environment.

Brock also enrols more than 8,000 adult students each year across a range of skills and qualification courses, apprenticeship programmes and tailor-made courses for business and industry.   A unique cookery school and a range of leisure courses and sporting activities also serve our community.  We strive to enhance lives through learning and constantly review our programmes to ensure they offer relevant study of real interest and benefit to all our students.
