Welcome to Grimsby Institute
With this in mind we appreciate that no two learners are the same. For many years the tradition has been to match a learner to a course, but, as we all know, one size does not fit all!
All you need to do is apply for the subject of your choice and we will work out the level of course using your predicted and actual GCSE results and other qualifications.
Principal & Chief Executive
The Grimsby Institute has a fantastic range of facilities and services for its learners.
Nuns Corner Campus, located in the centre of Grimsby, is the main provider of vocational training in the region.
It provides a broad curriculum that encompasses full and part-time provision from 14 years onwards.
The vast array of training options include Further and Higher Education choices offering Apprenticeships, community provision, business training, workbased training and commercial activities.
The Nuns Corner Campus is home to the Engineering & Renewable Energy Centre, a brand new £6million Sports Centre and the Grimsby School of Art, a new £4million home for our Creative Arts courses.
The Institute’s Nunsthorpe Community Campus, located a short walk from the Main Campus, offers some Construction provision alongside some of our Landbased Studies courses (Horticulture & Animal Care) that are also offered at the LRAC Campus.
The Grimsby Institute is also the base for a large Workforce Development provision and for the Food Refrigeration and Process Engineering Research Centre (FRPERC).
The Graduate Salon, our Hair & Beauty training salon, was recently named as the CIBTAC International Centre of the Year.
Other accreditations include being a BBC Education Partner for Media and Estuary TV, the first local TV station to be launched on Freeview, is broadcast from our Nuns Corner Campus. We have also achieved National Skills Academy status for Creative & Cultural Skills, Food Manufacturing and Environmental Technologies.
The Gallery Restaurant is a real-life training restaurant located at the Grimsby Institute, but don't let the word training put you off, it's nothing like you would expect.
We are the first fully-equipped training restaurant in Lincolnshire. HRH Prince Charles paid a visit to our training restaurant for a buffet lunch, prepared and served by our Hospitality & Catering learners under the supervision of our highly-experienced tutors.
Our learners and staff have won some of the UKs most prestigious competitions including UK Young Seafood Chef of the Year and Taste of Lincolnshire competitions.
