Time for a selfie at New College Doncaster

Ms Flint met Principal Brendon Fletcher to discuss the college’s first year. New College Doncaster exceeded expectations enrolling approximately 475 Year 12 students for its first year. The college hopes to double in size next year when it recruits the next cohort of students in September, with both Year 12 and Year 13 students in college.

I met students who were very enthusiastic about the experience of their first term at the college. The college clearly has an attractive offer. About a quarter of the students were from Hayfield school, but most are drawn from over 29 schools. The college buses over 200 students to college each day, with additional public transport available from Doncaster.”

We’re very much looking forward to working with Caroline in the future. New College Doncaster provides a new and exciting post-16 opportunity for Caroline’s constituents, and for young people across the whole of the borough.”
