Hi All,
I'm a school leaver soon and I'm already considering my future options already whilst I have time on my hands, and I am looking at colleges online. I like the look of Sandwell and their courses, plus it's not far from my house - I just wondered if anyone had any experiences, or thoughts to why I shouldn't shortlist it - what do other colleges do better?.

Hi! I don't live in the area but I went online and did some research for you!

Sandwell College is celebrating soaring success rates, ranking it 12th in the country, and ranked the best college in the West Midlands! I'm not sure what you want to apply for but the majority of the students seem to be taking vocational subjects so if you're aiming to take a subject like that then it looks great!
It has an overall achievement rate of 87.6 per cent and has recently undergone a huge surge in its numbers (so the funding will have increased too - this is an underrated but greatly important thing to consider when you're looking into any educational institution.) It is located in an area with high deprivation levels, and where school attainment of five GCSEs at grades A* to C is below national averages so the high results reflect the effort of both staff and students and the dedication that the college clearly puts into the education of its students. In its last Ofsted report (2019) they were shown to be making 'reasonable progress' in all areas. (You can find the report here: https://files.ofsted.gov.uk/v1/file/50056165

The college I attend has been ranked 2nd nationally in terms of the average total points score and even I'm feeling quite jealous! I do recommend it!
