Moulton College has seen a 20 per cent increase in its number of students after an 'overwhelming' demand this year.

The college, which has campuses in Moulton and Higham Ferrers, now has more than 1,900 full-time students, compared to 1,500 last year.

Principal and chief executive Corrie Harris said: “We are delighted to be welcoming so many new students to Moulton College this September.

“We are an ambitious organisation and we are very much focussed on the needs of each and every one of our students.

"We have developed a safe and secure environment that promotes personal well-being and we are committed to providing an exceptional and personalised student experience, which prepares each individual with the skills for work, life and success.

"We are pleased that the benefits of studying at Moulton have attracted both new and returning students."

The college is also celebrating a 'fabulous' year in terms of student achievement despite the coronavirus pandemic, according to Ms Harris.

“During the last 12 months we have quite rightly focused on ensuring that as many of our students as possible achieve their qualification with us," she explained

"Despite the challenges presented by the Covid pandemic, we were able to maintain the excellent progress made before the lockdown, switch our teaching to online to achieve pass rates above sector benchmark levels.

“I look forward to continuing to build on the substantial success we have already achieved at Moulton as we start to look forward to our centenary celebrations next summer.”
