We have halls of residence to cater for individual needs and all are supported 24 / 7 by our dedicated team of highly experienced wardens. They will make sure you are happy, content and have everything you need.

The college also has its own welfare officers on hand, who are able to provide any specialist support you may need. 

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted for Care Standards

In our last Ofsted inspection in October 2018, the care and support given to our students was rated as ‘outstanding’.

Inspectors found students living on campus at college “are happy, dedicated to their courses, make excellent progress and are full of praise for the college and its staff”.

The ‘social care common inspection framework’ visit found;

  • Bishop Burton is a friendly, safe and secure place to be
  • Students have excellent relationships with the staff and each other
  • The staff are a cohesive team that nurtures, encourages and advises students in many different ways to help them succeed
  • The welfare and development of students is a priority
  • Student behaviour is exemplary.
