Who are we?
Exeter College is a broad, thriving, and growing tertiary college which places teaching, learning, and student achievement is our top priority. We enjoy an excellent areal reputation. The College was judged as outstanding by Ofsted in a pilot “no notice” inspection in 2012, and again in a whole inspection in 2014. We were awarded the Times Educational Supplement ‘Outstanding Supplier of the Year’ in 2012 and BTEC College of the Year in 2014. We have high expectations of our students and staff and every year the consequences of their combined efforts in excellent exam grades, outstanding training successes, and brilliant music, art, sports, and community achievements. We welcome students of all ages and abilities and our tutorial and learner support programs are designed to meet their wants; challenging them to reach their whole potential. Exeter College ensures tertiary education for around 10,000 – 12,000 students. The college was founded in 1970 as the first tertiary college in the UK, bringing together the former grammar schools’ sixth forms and Exeter Technical College. Today, the college is forging a path as a college of the future, offering learners a variety of ways into the industry or further study. The college offers A-Levels, BTECs, Apprenticeships, and, from 2020, the government’s brand new T Levels; a technical-based qualification that prepares students for the industry with practical abilities and information.
To be an exceptional college.
To shape futures by delivering world-class education and training for our city and area.

The college obtains the views of staff and students on its review and development of the strategic plan and mission through planned staff consultations at various levels throughout the college and through the student Learner Voice Programme
