At Warrington & Vale Royal College we provide an enrichment programme that is engaging and challenging for all our students.

Through enrichment, you’ll be given the chance to learn a variety of new and interesting skills, which will aid you when applying for jobs or places at universities.

A day in the big city!

Check out these pictures from our Student Council trip to London. We did some sightseeing at Trafalgar Square before heading to the Palace of Westminster for a guided tour. Students had an amazing time exploring UK Parliament, Westminster Hall and even sat in the gallery of the House of Commons! Students had the privilege to be joined by Charlotte Nichols, Labour MP for Warrington North, at a parliamentary workshop. Another excellent day out!

There’s always something you can get involved in!

At Warrington & Vale Royal College we want to ensure that the voice of our students is heard.

Throughout the year you will have the opportunity to have your say in a variety of ways including taking part in Big Voice and our Learner Voice survey twice a year.

We also have a dedicated Student Council who meet on a regular basis with our Executive Leadership Team.

The Student Council take part in exciting trips and visits to places such as Westminster and the Houses of Parliament, as well as engaging with the local community through initiatives such as litter-picking.

You will be given the opportunity to join our Student Council once you start college!

Above are some images from the final Student Council meeting of the year, where we saw the election of a new Student President along with a new Vice President for the year 2022-2023. The team gathered in the boardroom at our Warrington campus to appoint new positions.

Previous Student President Kelsey Siddall passed her badge on to newly elected Tammy Rann and to our new Vice President, Marlena Wygzomerska.

A huge congratulations to each student involved and we can't wait to see what this year brings!

Courteney Ford

“Whilst completing a degree in dance, I worked with Warrington Youth Club as a Youth Worker on their National Citizen Service programme.

After graduating, I worked as a private dance school teacher, a passion that still gets fulfilled running the college dance club!

I love how creative this job allows me to be - ensuring as many students as possible leave college with all the life skills and prospects they need, to do what they want in life.”

Courteney Ford Enrichment 2

If ever you need a break from studying, there are places to relax at all our campuses or you could join us for a quick game of table tennis between lessons or challenge your friends on air hockey, connect 4 or table football.

We hope that all of the activities we run will enable you to socialise outside of your classes and help you to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.

Activities take place all year round and are designed to help you with your studies whilst allowing you to have fun and feel relaxed.

We also allow students free access to our on-site gym and fitness suite. You will need to take part in a gym induction first. Please speak to a gym instructor or the Student Engagement Officers for further information.

We always welcome new suggestions from our students on how we can further enhance your college experience.
