Abingdon & Witney College is an award-winning further education provider specialising in vocational qualifications, apprenticeships, degrees and more. It was established in April 2001 after the merger of Abingdon College and West Oxfordshire College.
Abingdon and Witney College is located at three main sites in Abingdon, Witney and Common Leys Farm near Hailey. The College also operates from 2 other permanent bases in Oxfordshire and up to 80 community-based venues each year.
The Abingdon campus is home to refurbished and brand-new buildings for learning career-specific skills. A Costa Coffee and cafeteria will help you to refuel, whilst the highest quality teaching facilities provide everything you need to succeed.
The Witney campus has seen a huge transformation in recent years. Large investments in its facilities have produced first-rate classrooms, workshops, studios, and other specialist buildings, all geared towards a practical approach to teaching and learning.
Common Leys Farm provides enclosures with animals of all sizes, an award-winning thoroughbred stud farm, and an innovative agrictech and livestock tech centre. Those eager to improve countryside management, ecological and horticulture skills can benefit from high-tech polytunnels and more than an acre of dedicated gardening and land maintenance space.
The College recruits students from across Oxfordshire and has 2,000 full time and 10,000 part-time adult students each year. It also has a wide range of higher education provision, with over 300 HE students attending each year, and offers high quality and highly regarded apprenticeships.
The College was last inspected by Ofsted in 2017 and was judged ‘outstanding’ for apprenticeships.
