The college was founded in King's Lynn as the King's Lynn Technical School in 1894. In 1973 it was renamed the Norfolk College of Arts and Technology and in 1998 it combined with the Cambridgeshire College of Agriculture & Horticulture, which added the two land-based campuses in Wisbech and Cambridge (Milton). In April 2006, the college merged with the Isle College in Wisbech to form the new enlarged College of West Anglia, with the addition of the Isle campus in Wisbech.
Across our four campuses - King's Lynn, Isle, Wisbech and Cambridge (Milton) - and local learning centres, we offer the widest choice of learning opportunities in the region. We are committed to providing the best learning experience possible for the thousands of people who take our courses every year. You may be a young person about to leave school and deciding on your next step or perhaps someone already in work looking to re-train or improve your skills; you may be aiming for a degree or HND but want to stay local or maybe you are looking for a part-time course in the evening - whatever your motivation, I am sure we will have something to offer you. For employers, we offer a wide range of bespoke and qualification-based training delivered at a time and place to suit you. We look forward to welcoming you to the college.
