“We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity of university-level education and we are proud to be able to offer you a high-quality experience from our modern facilities at your local College, right here in Yeovil. That belief drives and inspires our teaching, our staff, our students and the businesses we work with. We see it as our obligation to the community, not only to the current generation, but to future learners, and that passion has been commended by the QAA in their Higher Education Review in spring 2016.” John Evans Principal of Yeovil College.

Yeovil College is celebrating its 130th Birthday this academic year; it has been serving the community in and around Yeovil since 1887. The College was first formed when Somerset County Council began formally organising Science and Art classes in Yeovil. In 1947, the first Principal was appointed to lead Yeovil Technical College and when secondary education in the Yeovil Borough was reorganised in 1974, Yeovil College became one of the early tertiary colleges to be formed in England. 

Today, Yeovil College remains passionate about its role as a key provider of education and training in South Somerset and North and West Dorset. It remains committed to its role as a tertiary college for the whole community and currently supports around 5000 full and part-time students.
