About City And Islington College

We are London's Leading College, and the only College in London judged outstanding on every measure by Ofsted.

We are the first choice Further Education College for thousands of young people across London who achieve excellent academic results. 1400 of our students progressed to higher education last year.

It is our mission to deliver exceptional learning experiences for our students and to help them achieve their ambitions. Many of the achievements made by our students are incredible and out of the ordinary. From a wide range of starting points, students show that with the right attitude and approach, and with support from creative and expert staff, exceptional things can happen. Bold ambitions can be achieved.

We receive many external awards, but we are most proud of the recognition from our students. 95% tell us they feel respected and safe here, that the teaching is good, and they would recommend the College to a friend.
