South Gloucestershire and Stroud College

South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) is the new college formed by the merger between Stroud College and Filton College.

South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS), has four main campuses – Stroud, Filton, WISE and Berkeley Green– as well as many local community venues, and we welcome around 15,500 full-time and part-time students of all ages every year. We also have venues in the centre of Bristol, at the West of England Academy of Art and at the Bristol Zoo & Gardens.

As a merged college, we now offer an even wider range of vocational and academic courses in an even greater range of subjects.

Even though we are a bigger college, we are committed to giving each and every one of our students the best possible education.

Our campuses are based in state-of-the-art buildings in great locations – Filton and WISE are within easy reach of the centre of Bristol, while our Stroud campus is based in the beautiful Five Valleys in the county of Gloucestershire.

We offer a vast range of courses in an even wider range of subjects – from business to sport, engineering to media – so whatever you want to study, there’s bound to be something for you.

What’s more, SGS has an excellent reputation for delivering work-based programmes such as apprenticeships, higher apprenticeships and professional training, so if you’re after a practical course that’ll teach you the skills you need for your chosen career, you’ve come to the right place.

Our experienced and passionate staff work hard to help our students achieve their personal challenges and career goals. We’re proud of SGS and we're committed to making the new college the best it can be. We are currently working hard to achieve Outstanding status in our next Ofsted inspection.

Our strong partnership with the University of Gloucestershire means excellent opportunities for students who choose to go on to higher education.
