About Guildford College

At Guildford College, we are dedicated to promoting values which ensure that our students develop a strong sense of social and moral responsibility. We prepare our students for life in modern Britain by developing an understanding of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

It is our aim that all Guildford College students are able to contribute effectively to the wider community, using the skills and knowledge they have acquired during their time at Guildford College. As well as being fully engaged in their learning experience, we want our students to become responsible and well-rounded individuals.

We provide a range of opportunities to promote and develop these values within and beyond the curriculum.Through our tutorial and enrichment programmes you will have the opportunity to explore and develop the values, knowledge, confidence and skills to prepare you for life in modern Britain and to successfully progress to employment

Campus information

The government set out their definition of British Values in the 2011 Prevent Strategy. In 2014, the Department of Education published guidance on promoting British Values in schools to ensure young people leave school and college prepared for life in modern Britain.

The five definitions of British values are as follows:

  • Democracy
  • The rule of Law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual Respect
  • Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs

These new regulations sit alongside the requirements of the Equalities Act, which also applies to all educational institutions.

By Car

The College is easy to get to by road and there is a student car park with limited parking. The College may prioritise parking for certain groups of people. The majority of the roads locally have restricted parking.

Park and Ride Facilities 
There are several spacious park and ride facilities in the Guildford area with services operating quite regularly (every few minutes). The park and ride buses drop passengers off at the Friary shopping centre.
