Principal's welcome

City and Islington College's Principal, Frank McLoughlin

Thank you for your interest in City and Islington College.

We are London’s Leading College, and the only College in London judged outstanding on every measure by Ofsted.

We are the first choice Further Education College for thousands of young people across London who achieve excellent academic results. 1400 of our students progressed to higher education last year.

It is our mission to deliver exceptional learning experiences for our students and to help them achieve their ambitions. Many of the achievements made by our students are incredible and out of the ordinary. From a wide range of starting points, students show that with the right attitude and approach, and with support from creative and expert staff, exceptional things can happen. Bold ambitions can be achieved.

We receive many external awards, but we are most proud of the recognition from our students. 95% tell us they feel respected and safe here, that the teaching is good, and they would recommend the College to a friend.

At City and Islington we offer you

  • Modern and exciting places to learn
  • Skilled and highly qualified teachers with industry experience who are passionate and brilliant at what they do
  • Individual support to ensure you are successful
  • Enrichment opportunities, work experience and mentoring to help you gain key life and employability skills

Students learn in one of our five centres, each of which is a discrete community of students and staff focused on courses and qualifications within a particular specialism, which come together to form a single College that is diverse and exciting. Across each centre we work with over 200 employers to provide you with clear lines of sight to work.

Whether you are taking an academic or vocational route to your further study, I am confident we will have a course that meets your needs. I hope very much that you will choose to join us and become part of the next chapter in our success story.
