Hugh Baird College and South Sefton College to merge

ON 1 December 2017, following Sefton Council approval and support, South Sefton College will become part of Hugh Baird College. The decision is based on a strategy and shared desire to offer the very best post 16 education for those living in Sefton and the Liverpool City Region.

The move for Hugh Baird College to take ownership of South Sefton College helps to provide a broad curriculum offer for school leavers in the area and, importantly, safeguards the provision of high quality A-Level education for the South Sefton area. In addition, the new arrangement will ensure that all School leavers in South Sefton and the surrounding area can be guaranteed a place in a specialist centre, on a course that is suitable for them and their future career ambitions.

Both Colleges will keep their respective sites. However, South Sefton College will be renamed as Hugh Baird College's South Sefton Campus and it will be home to the College's dedicated Sixth Form Centre and will house its A-Level provision.

Yana Williams, Hugh Baird College Principal and Chief Executive is clear that the move is a step forward for the Colleges and for post 16 education in the Liverpool City Region, and stated:- "We are delighted by this latest announcement and see it as a very positive strategic move that will ensure school leavers in the South Sefton area enjoy access to a broad, high quality post 16 offer. The coming together of the two organisations provides our local community and employers with a '1 stop shop' for post 16 provision and I am confident that we can build on the strengths of the 2 institutions. We are confident that this transition will build on both Colleges' successful foundations and we look forward to developing and improving the educational landscape in the region for the benefit of school leavers, businesses and the wider local community."
