Gainsborough College is a vibrant, friendly, welcoming place which offers excellent resources, facilities and opportunities for students.
We want every one of our students to have a great time with us and remember the experience for years to come. You will have the chance to join in with social activities, sports, trips, work experience and much more!
Enjoy student life at Gainsborough College and let us help you reach your potential both inside and outside the classroom.
Gainsborough has an interesting history; it was the country's capital for two weeks and the furthest inland port.
The Old Hall has had some famous guests, including King Richard III in in 1483 and King Henry VIII who stayed there with his wife Katherine Howard in 1541.
Today, Marshall's Yard retail site attracts visitors from as far afield as Sheffield and is part of the heritage of the town.
Gainsborough is proud of its engineering industry that has been important to the town since the 1800s.
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.
