Life in Newark
Newark-on-Trent is a thriving market town, with great road and rail links you can travel to the cities of Nottingham and Lincoln in around 30 minutes.
Newark has an interesting history dating back to 1068 when Newark Castle, parts of which still remain, was built.
Today the town offers a full range of facilities, affordable housing and a traditional community atmosphere.
The town has a vibrant market 4 days a week and is host to a growing number of events that celebrate music including jazz and folk festivals.
We celebrate diversity and challenge inequality to create a safe learning environment for all of our students.
Coming to college is all about developing your independence, making new friends, taking advantage of new opportunities and learning new skills for your future career; the more you put in, the more you will get out of college life.
