This means making sure that:

  • everybody has the support necessary to achieve to the best of their ability
  • everybody enjoys their time at College, with nobody treated less favourably on the grounds of sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, religion or belief, pregnancy/maternity status, lifestyle, social background, country of origin, language or any other grouping of our society

We’re committed to social justice – in other words, giving all individuals the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Together we aim to be a tolerant community where everyone accepts the differences between individuals and celebrates the benefits that diversity brings to the college.
