As a student at Riverside College you will be at the centre of everything we do. We want you to reach your full potential, whilst also enjoying an inclusive and supportive college community where you can thrive.
We are exceptionally proud of the class of 2021 who, despite the challenges of this year, have achieved outstanding results and progressed on to exceptional apprenticeships, jobs and degrees. You can read about some of them in this prospectus.
This summer the college celebrated a 100% BTEC Pass Rate with 88% BTEC High Grades and 48% BTEC Triple Distinction Star Grades (equivalent to 3 A* grades at A level). These results demonstrate that the college continues to consistently perform well above national averages, meaning the college provides some of the best education in the country.
In March 2020 Ofsted inspected the college and we are delighted that they recognised the tremendous efforts of our dedicated teaching and support staff, and the motivation and exemplary behaviour of our wonderful students by awarding us with the highest possible grade, Outstanding.
