Word From The Head

Head Photo

From Andrea Bingley, Principal

Since our founding in 1948, countless pupils have benefitted from a Tower College education. They have been welcomed into the best sixth form colleges and then studied for degrees at prestigious universities. They have managed to make a difference in every imaginable field and endeavour. I am constantly amazed at the contributions they have made, and continue to make, to the world around us.

But I shouldn’t be surprised. Our past pupils’ inspiring achievements are a direct reflection of their Tower College experience.

Everything we do here is guided by our core values of Resilience, Integrity, Scholarship and Enrichment and these values are evident in our pupils’ GCSE exam results, extra-curricular achievements, charitable fundraising and in the many enthusiastic endorsements we receive from current and former parents.

Opportunities to Succeed

At Tower College, we provide our pupils with the opportunities to achieve not only academic excellence but to also gain fundamental life skills such as finding their own strong voice, being kind and considerate, being an effective listener, being creative and being able to solve problems both individually and as part of a team; skills that are necessary if they are to thrive in an ever-changing world.

It’s no secret that we place emphasis on favourable class sizes and on the standard of teaching as these are proven to have the largest impact on a child’s progress.

A structured curriculum is delivered by qualified and caring staff who inspire and challenge, enabling every pupil to achieve their full potential. Pupils certainly benefit from a tailored learning experience, delivered in a secure and nurturing environment that encourages a lifelong passion for learning and a genuine interest in the world.

As you read through this website, you will discover more about Tower College and what sets us apart. When you’re ready to learn more, please feel free to contact our Registrar to arrange a visit. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing more about what makes our school so very, truly remarkable.

It is an exciting time and an honour for me to be part of this wonderful school and I hope that you are interested in being part of our family.
