About Us

Salford City College compromises of three different colleges:

Eccles Sixth Form College
A CENTRE OF VOCATIONAL EXCELLENCE

Pendleton Sixth Form College
A CENTRE OF ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE 

Salford College of Further Education:
City Skills | FutureSkills @MediaCityUK | Walkden Centre 
A CENTRE OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE 

Each college prides itself on delivering the best teaching and learning possible, all have the same underlying values to give all students great opportunities and are guaranteed to receive high quality education when studying with us. Each of our centres strive towards the same high values and quality standards, but each offer specific courses supported by the very best facilities for that area.

We have highly successful colleges.  Our excellence is reflected in Pendleton Sixth Form College’s 97% A-Level pass rate, with 66% achieving high grades. Once again, Eccles Sixth Form College and Salford College of Further Education achieved 99% advanced Vocational pass rate. Our Ofsted grade of Good and our achievement rates which place us at the number 1 GFE College in Greater Manchester.  This success is down to our commitment to ensure that students choose the right course and are given all of the support and guidance that they need in order to achieve their full potential.

We are very keen that opportunities go beyond the teaching and learning that takes place in the classroom.  Our students get many opportunities to go on trips and visits, we have high calibre guest speakers coming into the college and our links with industry professionals gives students that all-important opportunity to get in front of potential employers. 

We also support students by offering travel on our college bus service which has been in operation for many years and offers a quick, safe and reliable service to students across Greater Manchester.  We are also committed to ensuring that students can afford the option of attending college, and therefore, if the household income is less than £20K per annum, we will provide students with £10 per week.

We hope that prospective students will come and see us at an Open Event, meet our staff and current students and see why we are number 1.
