Welcome from the Principal

It is my pleasure to introduce you to City College. I am immensely proud of this college and am delighted to be its Principal. City College has the strength, character and further potential to be a leading centre of education, and is already making itself an integral part of the local community in the heart of Burslem.

As a father to three children and with twenty years experience working in education, I understand that a successful and happy college depends on partnership, and I am looking forward to working closely with you so that your young people go from strength to strength to become well rounded, confident and successful, whether they move on to university or employment post-Year 13. Education is the key to enriching lives and unlocking potential, and every member of the City College community is entitled to the world class learning experiences that we create for them so that they can thrive.

Our wider curriculum offer covers a huge range of topics including current safeguarding concerns, fundamental British values and links to further education, careers, apprenticeships and local business.

Our students deserve the very best opportunities in life; the staff at City College are committed to ensuring that they are well prepared to be the very best they can be.

Mike Dawes
Principal, City College
