Windsor Forest Colleges Group


Strode’s College and East Berkshire College formally merged on 9 May 2017 to create a larger college group under the name, Windsor Forest Colleges Group. The aim of our partnership is to provide greater opportunities for young people, adults and businesses in Berkshire, Surrey and the surrounding areas.

Together we have over 300 years of experience and provide over 800 full-time, part-time and apprenticeship courses in various subjects, from entry level through to Higher Education.

Delivering high quality education and training to over 8,000 students and businesses each year, we offer state-of-the-art learning environments at our three main campuses: Langley College, Strode’s College in Egham and Windsor College.

Our colleges

Our Langley College specialises in providing innovative technical and professional education, while Strode’s College and Windsor College offer an exceptional sixth form learning experience with a wide range of A Levels and BTECs. All three colleges provide part-time professional and recreational courses.

Our students predominately identify with one particular college campus, but being part of a larger college group means they benefit from greater learning opportunities, access to a wider range of resources and more progression routes. It is the best of both worlds – the specialist expertise and personal approach of an individual college with all the advantages of a larger college group!

Our vision

We are committed to maintaining and building upon each college’s long record of success in delivering the highest standards of education and training. Dedicated to improving lives through learning, all our colleges deliver an exceptional learning experience that uses the latest technology, inspirational teaching methods, industry-trained staff and excellent support services, to ensure every student has the chance to fulfil their potential and achieve their ambitions.
