West Suffolk College

West Suffolk College is an ambitious vocational and academic College, with a stunning main campus set in the heart of Bury St Edmunds.

We are committed to providing outstanding education to all our students. Our ethos is to put our learners’ success at the heart of everything we do. That means we will do everything we can to help our students succeed and be the best they can be.

We have a wonderful range of courses, facilities, tutors and opportunities to build an excellent foundation for a career or go onto Higher Education.

As a partner College of the University of Suffolk, we offer more than 40 foundation and honours degrees at the College across a wide range of subjects.

We have forged valuable links with business and industries across all fields to make sure students develop skills that will increase their employability.

We believe in engaging with our students as young adults in a supportive and encouraging environment and we aim to give the best opportunity to develop, grow and become passionately involved in their own education.

Plans to build a world-class sixth form college in Bury St Edmunds have been given the go ahead.

The college is a collaboration between the West Suffolk College sponsored Suffolk Academies Trust - which includes Suffolk One in Ipswich and local upper schools including King Edward VI School and Sybil Andrews Academy in Bury St Edmunds.

The college aims to replicate the success of Suffolk One, an outstanding sixth form college, and will offer more than 40 A-Level courses to 16-19 year olds from across the whole of West Suffolk. Curriculums will be timetabled to allow students to study high level specialist vocational qualifications at West Suffolk College alongside their A Levels if appropriate.

West Suffolk College is on a journey. We have huge ambitions to be the best college in the UK and we believe our community deserves nothing less.
