Welcome to New City College

A warm welcome from our Group Principal and CEO Gerry McDonald

I’m very pleased that you are finding out more about our college. I am confident we have the right course for you, which will help you to achieve your future career goals and ambitions.

At New City College we help students realise possibility. With opportunities for everyone, we encourage our students to look beyond today and to reach their full potential.

We are the fourth largest college group in the UK with campuses across Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Redbridge, Epping Forest and Havering. Our strength comes from our community roots and our ability to nurture talent. With a wide choice of courses for local school leavers, SEND students, adults and those looking for higher education qualifications we have the vitality to help students break boundaries and think big. 

Throughout the year we hold a number of open days, welcome events and taster days at all of our campuses and I hope you will be able to come along and find out more about us and talk to our teachers and students. We are proud of all our students and the success they have achieved. You will join a college that will support you and drive you at every stage to be tenacious, determined and committed so that you do achieve your very best.

If you are looking to go onto university, we send almost 1,500 students a year, including many to Russell Group universities, including Cambridge, UCL, King’s College and Queen Mary as well as others outside of London. If you are looking to progress to work instead, we have relationships with many leading businesses in London and have helped our students secure highly sought after apprenticeships in businesses such as KPMG, Thomson Reuters, Accenture and Lyle and Scott.

Our vision for every student is limitless.
