Welcome to our school


We are an exciting and innovative school geared to providing the best possible opportunities for students.  We trust that you will find our school to be a lively and dynamic institution, which leads all who work here to a new vision of their potential.


Our school is based on values that demonstrate a real commitment to the young people that we serve.  We believe in providing a diet for students that is appropriate to their needs; we strive with a passion for excellence as adults and for our students.


The school received a favourable OFSTED report in September 2007 but we are determined not to stand still.  There is lots still to do and we are open in saying that we can always be better. We will always maintain a relentless focus on standards and this will never be compromised.


Students here are expected to aim for excellence, get involved in the life of the school and help to maintain the high standards of interpersonal relationships on which we all depend. Students are challenged to reach for what is beyond their immediate grasp and aspire to great things for the benefit of others.


Partnership is important and our relationship with others including parents is critical in providing for the needs of our students.  With other education providers there is a healthy competition yet a true belief that we must work together to deliver courses for students through the best possible avenues.  Our relations with parents are based on honesty and trust.



An Inclusive School developing a passion for learning ..... to be the best that I can be




We believe that we should:

be good learners

act considerately

respect individual rights, views and property

tell the truth

keep promises

work for the benefit of others

be self disciplined

be open in our communications


Facilities of the Colne Community School include:

The Refectory (Starbakes) serving hot and cold food from breakfast until 2.00pm. Available for use by students, staff and visitors.


The School Library for study, revision and homework research by staff and students.


The Sports Centre and Floodlit All Weather pitch for all sporting activities.
Some facilities are open to the general public from 10.00am.


The Resources Centre for photocopying supplies and equipment. Open to the students, staff, local schools and the community (please register at the main reception).

The Cyber Space.  Free internet access for the public opening at 8.30am each day until 3.30pm Monday and Friday and 4.00pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Please note that this facility maybe suspended during our examination period.


The College has an excellent history of academic success which has lead to many students going on to higher education or well paid employment. Already this year students have completed their Oxbridge applications and many more are deep into the U.C.A.S process.


The aim of the Colne College is to enable students to reach university or achieve excellent results ready for employment. We never lose sight of this whilst balancing the academic and social side of college life.


You are joining us at an exciting time, with the College undergoing some new developments, including a wide range of enrichment activities and responsibilities for students. In order to allow our students to excel on applications for University or employment, we offer an enrichment programme which allows students to supplement their courses with other interests. We also provide students with the opportunity to take on leadership responsibilities in the college. We have an excellent student leadership structure, which contains teams of students who help shape the vision of the Colne  School and College. These additional activities help Colne Students to stand out from the crowd.


There are five routes into the Colne College, each one leads our students to the goal of Higher education or joining the workforce over a two or three year period. Students need to explore which route is best for them to follow.  Each student has individual needs and requirements in their learning and who better to help guide them than the teachers who have brought them to this stage in their education? We know our students better than anyone else, and can provide a personalised approach to learning which allows for a quick and effective start to their courses.


Our tutoring programme is innovative and designed to be the stepping stone to University tutoring. Each student will have a college counsellor who will personally oversee their academic progress as well as encouraging their social growth. This tutorial programme is incorporated into students' timetables, and they receive personal attention throughout their studies culminating in one to one support as they make their applications to university or jobs.


As a school sixth form we offer the familiarity of knowing the site and the staff, but with a very different way of working and learning. Moving from studying at GCSE level to Advanced Level is a challenging step, it is reassuring to be a part of a community of familiar faces to help you succeed.

I look forward to you joining us in the Colne College.


Mark Wilson

Director of Colne College
