Welcome from the Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Ludlow College, and hope you will find what you are looking for on our website. If you need any help, please ring me or a colleague and we will endeavour to answer your questions about learning with us in Ludlow.

Ludlow College is a unique sixth form college, situated in the centre of Ludlow, a mediaeval town in the Marches of South Shropshire.

The College offers an excellent choice of A Levels including all the ‘facilitating’ subjects which are particularly favoured by the UK’s elite research intensive Russell Group universities. We are proud of our exceptionally long history of providing high quality academic education in Ludlow, and of the many students who have gone on to achieve outstanding results at the country’s best universities.

In addition to our academic programmes, we offer a selection of courses, principally advanced level BTEC Diplomas and English and mathematics GCSEs, to complement our A level curriculum. Many of our BTEC students also progress to university, although some prefer to move straight into employment whilst retaining the option to study at university at a later stage.

Ludlow College is a very special college, and we are pleased to offer you:

  • An excellent and rigorous academic education supported by teaching in relatively small groups;
  • An exceptionally high level of individual support to help you realise your full potential;
  • Experienced, well educated academic staff who are fully committed to your success;
  • Excellent modern learning facilities provided in superb buildings, which date from the Middle Ages to the 21st century.

I sincerely hope that you will give serious consideration to pursuing your educational dreams with us at Ludlow College.




As Head of Ludlow College, I am very proud that the College is going from strength to strength, with the performance of our students getting better every year. We are the only College in the area to offer a timetable suited to the demands of young people living in our rural community, who often face long daily journeys. Our timetables book study periods to guarantee free half days and, in most cases, a free day every week; so students can study at home, pursue their sporting or other extra-curricular activities, or possibly take a part-time job. I look forward to meeting you at one of our Open Events and welcoming you to our unique and friendly College.
