Thomas Rotherham College
We here at this historic college are all very proud to be associated with Rotherham’s most important post-16 provider. There has been a centre of academic excellence on this site for over 500 years. We have a long and enviable tradition of providing the very best educational opportunities for the young people of this region. We firmly believe that this successful college can meet the needs of all learners across the 16-19 age range in a welcoming, supportive and safe environment.
We have been recognised locally and nationally for our provision. We are the largest provider of A Level courses in the area, with over 25 subjects on offer. We also offer a range of vocational pathways and sports academies. Offering everything from Biology to Philosophy, Criminology to Sport and Languages to Performing Arts, we are certain to be able to provide an exciting and varied post-16 education.
With a student population of over 1500 (and growing) we can guarantee that our teachers are highly qualified specialists in their field, who will focus on teaching their subjects to the highest standards, with a more appropriate approach for the 16-19 year old learner – preparing them for progression on to university or employment. Supported by a strong careers provision, our students progress to prestigious universities (including the Russell Group and Oxbridge), onto highly competitive higher education courses and into excellent careers. We have incredibly strong partnerships with schools, the wider community, universities and employers.
We take the student experience very seriously. We are renowned for innovation, compassion and a determination to be the best we can be. We all understand the value of hard work, we care about learning, we care about each other and we know the importance of community.
Thomas Rotherham College is a very special place. Our students benefit from a truly wonderful learning environment. Our commitment to excellence has seen us develop and improve our buildings, classrooms, learning spaces and wider educational and sporting provision.
