What our schools say

We have built positive long lasting relationships with a large number of schools in the north east.

Here are a few of the comments made by our partner schools:

Tanfield School, Specialist College of Science and Engineering

‘‘As a school we have been working with Newcastle College for several years to support our pupils with further education guidance and support. The information they pass onto our pupils is invaluable. They attend a wide range of our events such as careers fairs, formal and informal presentations to pupils and parents and guardians, and enjoyable taster days at Newcastle College.

Without the help and support of the school liaison team our pupils would be far less educated on further education choices. I would highly recommend any school to work with Newcastle College.’’

Kathryne Wall
ICT Teacher & Careers Co-ordinator

Bedlington Community High School

‘‘Newcastle College were invited in to be part of our Future Pathways Event in order to give our students as much information about the opportunities available to them after or instead of 6th Form College.

Their representative gave a relevant, informative and balanced presentation which showed the many progression routes open to our students if they opted to continue their studies at Newcastle College.

The guidance and advice which was offered to our students and their parents after the presentations was specific to their individual needs and in a manner which gave them confidence in approaching the college for further details and information. Parents and students alike left the evening with questions being answered and aspirations being raised.’’

Michael Laidlaw
Head of Sixth Form

Jarrow School

‘‘Katherine from the Newcastle College School Liaison team has a wonderfully warm personality and strikes up an immediate rapport with our pupils.’’

Susan Green
Alternative Education Manager

Walbottle Campus

''I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of the staff at Newcastle College for the fabulous support you gave us last night at our Year 11 careers event. Special thanks to the two tutors from Construction for their support and information on the night. Most of the students I have spoken to since the event have informed me that they spoke to Newcastle College and got lots of helpful, relevant information.”

Trish Lough
Work Experience Coordinator

Queen Elizabeth High School

''I would like to pass on my thanks to the tutor from automotive for running the automotive engineering sessions at Queen Elizabeth High School. I know the workshop went down really well with the students and we appreciate the time he put into these. The whole day is about students making appropriate post-16 choices and I know this will have helped greatly in that process.''
