Our campus has a strong reputation for university progression, with many students every year going onto university, including to the leading Russell Group members. Our departments have strong relationships with leading businesses in London. Previous students have secured apprenticeship roles in top companies such as KPMG, Accenture, Thompson Reuters and Goldman Sachs, and where they are now working full-time.

Students Feedback

Students Feedback

"All my life I've disliked studying mathematics. I always struggled at school, however when I met my maths teacher at Poplar everything changed. I finally understand math and for the first time ever I am having fun learning. My teacher is by far the best math teacher I have ever had, and he completely transformed me as a student"

"My tutor as well as my subject teacher for childcare, puts in so much effort, time and hard work. She's very encouraging and is always available if we need help with anything. I love the way she teaches as she ensures that we all understand. When I first started college, I was nervous, however she has always been a support for me. I will really miss her once I leave college because she is the best!"

"My creative arts teacher is a devoted teacher. She pushes us to our limits to produce great work for University interviews. She is also dedicated to helping us to improve our self-awareness in learning instead of relying on her the whole time."

"My Business teacher and tutor has always gone the extra mile to support us in achieving our full potential. He’s very down to earth and the nicest tutor I’ve ever had, he would never give up on his students no matter what. When I first started New City College, I never had faith in myself regarding academic work and my future, but my teacher helped me and went the extra mile to make sure I always understood. Now in my second year, I am a D* student in BTEC Business."

"My motor vehicle teacher can't do enough to help me when I'm stuck doing practical in the car work shop"

"I've never had such consistently supportive teachers in Science before New City College. My Science teacher is a great role model and has effective communication and patience. He really supports the well-being of his learner's academic achievements. "
