Welcome

We are proud of the excellent relationships between staff and students and our purposeful, lively and friendly atmosphere.

Since opening, the College has been a popular choice for students and has continued to expand. There are approximately 2000 students on roll with a significant proportion coming from outside Darlington and a number from independent schools. The majority of our students have a full Advanced Level Study Programme and the academic work of the College is of a high standard with an excellent record of examination success across the curriculum.

Over recent years, we have invested more than £7 million in our buildings and facilities. Developments include an expanded and refurbished library, open access learning areas, media suites, state of the art science facilities, a fully equipped performance studio and an extension to the student common room with a Costa Coffee outlet. We’ve also done a lot of work to preserve and enhance our iconic Victorian frontage.
