About the training provider

Collingwood College is Surrey Heath’s first high-performing Academy. Collingwood is one of Surrey’s largest and most successful secondary schools for students aged 11-19. We have more than 1700 students, including a Sixth Form of well over 250 and 250 teaching and support staff, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring that all our students fulfil their potential and enjoy to the full their secondary education.

As a comprehensive school specialising in Technology, we welcome students of all abilities. The College offers an outstanding range of educational and extra-curricular opportunities, which few other schools can match.

The College’s very successful OFSTED inspection in January 2017 confirmed it to be a good school with outstanding leadership and management. Collingwood’s breadth of curriculum and the quality of the Sixth Form received particular praise. Academic performance at GCSE and A Level is impressive. Our relentless focus on English and Maths ensures results at GCSE are consistently high. Able students are stretched with, on average, 20% of the cohort achieving 5 or more A*/A grades each year.

The diverse talents of our students supported by committed and highly experienced staff are key factors in the success of the College. All Collingwood students are offered a wide range of personal development and leadership opportunities within their curriculum.

We have a thriving Sixth Form based in a purpose-built teaching centre. The majority of our students progress into our Sixth Form and from there into higher education. We offer extensive academic and vocational programmes of study.
