Welcome from the Group Principal and CEO


Welcome to the 'outstanding' land-based college. As one of the top colleges in the UK - graded as 'outstanding' by Ofsted for both our teaching and care provision - we pride ourselves on making all of our students feel welcome and secure in what is a fantastic learning environment.

Paul Hannan, the Principal of Hadlow College

As a specialist, high quality, land-based College, we offer a large range of courses to suit the needs of many different students.  You may have just finished school and are considering what to do next or, alternatively, you could be considering a career change or want to turn a hobby into something more.

Whatever the reason, we are confident that we can help.  By choosing us, you will benefit from excellent teaching and support, world class specialist facilities and wonderful links with our commercial and international partners.  Our specialist further education and higher education curriculum offer a range of programmes from school and foundation learning, up to full honours degree programmes in partnership with the University of Greenwich.

Deciding on your next step is not always easy.  That is why we have a series of information events and taster days where you can visit and talk to our staff.  Our Information and Recruitment Service can also provide advice on fees, funding and additional support.  Every year we have more and more students coming to the College to discover the opportunity and excitement of studying, and then working, in the land-based sector.

Once you have visited or spoken to us, I’m sure you will want a place at Hadlow College.
