Northampton College is proud to announce that it is now one of the top performing colleges in the country having enjoyed a dramatic four-year turnaround.
Data released as part of the latest 2017/18 National Achievement Rates Tables (NART) shows Northampton College is ranked 11th out of more than 200 colleges for 16 to 18-year-old education and training.
That represents a rise of 198 places in the rankings in just four years, to become the leading provider of Further Education in the South East Midlands and among the very best in the whole country.
The data has revealed that 95 per cent of Northampton College students pass their course, coming out as the best college in the South East Midlands region for achievement at level 1, 2 and 3. Performance in maths and English is also well above the national average.
The data backs up the findings of a recent Ofsted inspection which rated the college as ‘Good with Outstanding features’.
