Dear students,

It is my privilege to welcome you to the 2023/24 academic year at Loughborough College, after, what I hope was a fantastic summer break.
Over the next year, we aim to provide an amazing experience at Loughborough College, where you will receive a high-quality education as well as a variety of opportunities to hone the skills that will unlock your potential.
I am so proud to lead an organisation that puts students at the heart of everything it does. This begins with our dedicated staff who aim to inspire and encourage you to be the best version of yourself by nurturing life-long learning skills that will empower
you in your future life and career aspirations.
As well as recruiting fantastic staff, Loughborough College is investing millions of pounds in improving our campus. Our modern classrooms, versatile study areas, well-catered social-spaces and high-tech facilities ensure that you have the best
possible learning environment to develop your talents.
It makes me so proud to see students exceed their limits by pushing themselves in ways they never thought possible. It is one of the many reasons my team and I love working in education.
Everything we achieve at Loughborough College stems from our values: Respect, Innovation, Success and Empowerment (RISE). The RISE values drive what we do and how we do it.
Our values are underpinned by our inclusive and diverse culture which is embedded across our campus by our unwavering focus on Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE).
Celebrating your individuality, independence and intelligence is a key priority and our safeguarding and student support team are always on hand to help.
We also have four-legged faculty members, including fully-trained therapy dog Mylie and her other furry friends that are currently in training. They are guaranteed to put a smile on your face, so don’t be afraid to say hello.
Finally, I’m really looking forward to meeting you around our campus over the next year. Please read through all of the information contained in this pack and don’t hesitate to get in touch with your curriculum area if you have any questions.
Remember, this year is about you and your journey to success. We want to help you find your feet, experience real-life opportunities and ultimately achieve your goals.

Best wishes,

Jo Maher
Principal & CEO
