Mission statement: To be the education and training provider of first choice
Bournville College was established in 1913 (then known as Bournville Day Continuation School) by George Cadbury.
The function of the school was ‘to provide young people with a sound general education which will fit them to meet the demands of life and work in the best possible way’.
In 1973, Bournville College relocated to a new campus on Bristol Road South in Birmingham, which it occupied till 2011.
In September 2011, Bournville College relocated to a new £66 million purpose built campus in Longbridge, kick-starting wider regeneration of the area after the collapse of MG-Rover in 2005. Click here to find out more about our new campus.
