Schools Liaison

The College’s dedicated Schools Liaison team is here to provide a comprehensive service to schools, pupils, parents and careers advisors to help update prospective learners about the opportunities available at NSCG.

Our friendly Schools Liaison Team are here to help and support you with the transition from school to college. Martyn, Megan, Georgina and Nathan will more than likely be in your school at some point throughout your final year at school. You will be able to find out more about college life through talks, workshops and taster events so that you can make an informed decision about your future.

To discuss further about our bespoke range of activities, you can contact a member of the team directly:

Why College?

If you’re struggling to decide whether to stay on at your school sixth form or go to college, we’re here to help you make the right decision for you.

Bigger Choice

We have a much wider choice of courses. You can choose to study A Levels from 30 different subjects at Newcastle and 22 at Stafford. If you have a real interest in a particular subject we have a wide range of vocational courses in a variety of subjects.

Specialist Staff

Our teaching staff concentrate solely on the courses that they teach, and are therefore experts in their field!


We have a big team of people who are here to help keep you focused on achieving your goals. You will have a Personal Tutor, with whom you will have formal progress performance reviews every half-term. In addition, we have a network of specialist staff including Learner Managers and Career Advisors.

Results & Success

The Group's achievement rates on A Levels and advanced vocational courses consistently exceed national benchmarks, firmly placing Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG) among the top 5% of General Further Education Colleges in the country, for learners aged 16-18.


College offers a different atmosphere to that of school. The environment is much more informal and students are given a lot more independence and treated more like adults. You probably won’t attend college every day, so it’s important that you dedicate study time to your days off.


Overall, 95% of our students are going on to university, an apprenticeship or employment. For several consecutive years, NSCG has been the biggest provider of students to higher education in Staffordshire, with over 1200 students progressing to over 100 different universities last year.
