Middlesbrough College, located on one campus at Middlehaven, Middlesbrough, England, in the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, is the largest college in the Tees Valley. It provides predominantly further education, but also selected higher education provision, and until 2008, existed on four different sites across the town (Marton, Acklam, Kirby and Longlands). It currently has 16,000 students.

Middlesbrough College was one of Tees Valley Regeneration's major redevelopment projects.


History and estates

Two of the pre-2008 sites were those of the former secondary schools, the boys-only Acklam Hall Grammar School and the girls-only Kirby Grammar School. These were merged to form Acklam High School, a comprehensive school, in 1968. They were then further changed to Acklam Sixth Form College and Kirby College of Further Education. Middlesbrough College was initially created in 1995 by the merger of these institutions, and then grew by merging with Teesside Tertiary College in 2002, adding two more sites. In summer 2008, the four sites were consolidated onto a single site at Middlehaven.[1]


Courses range from university-oriented academics to vocational education. Selected higher education courses exist by virtue of an indirectly-funded partnership arrangement with the Teesside University.
