As a specialist, high quality, land-based college, we offer a huge range of courses to suit the needs of many different students. Graded at our last inspection as Outstanding, we pride ourselves on making all our students feel welcome and secure in what is a fantastic learning environment. We are very proud of what we do at Hadlow College and we are also the only college in Kent to be both Ofsted ‘outstanding’ and an LSIS Beacon provider.
You’ll find us in Kent, with our main site and administrative headquarters at Hadlow, a beautiful village in the heart of the Kent countryside, near Tonbridge.
Additional campuses are found in Kent at Canterbury and Medway and in South East London at Mottingham and Greenwich.
We offer a wide range of courses, from Entry Level up to Honours Degrees, and land-based Apprenticeship routes. In addition to the academic courses, we also offer a wide range of part time leisure and pleasure courses across all our sites, offered not only during the day but also in the evening and at weekends. We offer our higher education courses in partnership with the University of Greenwich. Our programmes include foundation degrees and honours degrees in land-based subjects. This means our students can stay with us when they progress from further to higher education and we also attract students from Kent and the rest of the country to study with us.
