Burnley College ranked best in the country

Burnley College Sixth Form Centre has been ranked as the best in the country by the government.

The college's results over the last 12 months include a 99.8% A Level pass rate and a 100% Advanced Vocational pass rate for the sixteenth consecutive year. Ofsted ranked the college as 'outstanding'.

It is also undertaking a £100m upgrade town centre campus, developing its learning, fitness and science facilities as well as further expanding its Centre of Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Excellence.

Karen Buchanan, principal,  said: "I am immensely proud that the outstanding, on-going efforts of our students, apprentices and staff have been recognised nationally. However, success for us, in the Burnley College family, is not merely about statistics and league tables.

"Success is changing the lives of our students and apprentices: providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to stand head and shoulders above the rest; the broad range of experiences which empower them to determine and shape their own future and the support to develop as confident, resilient members of society, with the drive to make a positive difference."
