Uxbridge College is celebrating after becoming number one in London for educating young people - for the third year running.

Uxbridge College came top in new figures from the Learning and Skills Council for 2007-8 - beating every one of the capital's 38 other further education providers.

The College, which has campuses in Uxbridge and Hayes, showed a success rate of 83% for 16-18 year-olds on long qualifications. These qualifications - mainly courses lasting a year or more - are taken by around 3,000 full-time students.

Laraine Smith, Principal of Uxbridge College, said: "It is a real triumph for Uxbridge College to have become number one college for the third year running - keeping up standards like this is a hard act to pull off, but we've done it.

"This high level of achievement means Uxbridge College students are assured of gaining what they need to move on to a higher level of study or to the job that they want.

"GCSEs, A Levels, BTECs and NVQs are among the wide range of options for young people studying here, many of whom show amazing progress during their time here.

"In terms of measuring a college's achievements, success rates leave no stone unturned because they are based on the numbers joining courses at the start of the year, not simply those taking exams.

"But regardless of all the celebrating we have been doing, we are not complacent. We will continue to do everything possible to ensure continued excellence in our facilities, standards of teaching, and the support we offer to our students."
