Proposed Merger with Amersham & Wycombe College

Proposed Merger between Aylesbury College and Amersham & Wycombe College

Aylesbury College and Amersham & Wycombe College are in discussions focused on bringing together both colleges, sharing our expertise and resources to create one combined college to power skills and education in Bucks.

The proposed merger will create a larger, more capable and resilient organisation; where the best elements from the two current colleges are combined, delivering consistently high quality teaching and improving outcomes for students across all three campuses.

Both colleges wish to emphasise that our ongoing discussions on the proposed merger will not have any impact on current students, who will continue to be taught at all three campuses, or on potential students applying to either college for September 2017; students should apply to their college of choice as they normally would.
