Bright Future 

Strategic ambitions 2021 - 2024 

  1. Students - Delivering an exceptional student experience 
  2. Staff - Empowering and motivating staff 
  3. Stakeholders - Building partnerships within the community 
  4. Growth & Innovation - Supporting enterprise and delivering growth 

People must always be at the heart of our approach and our students, staff and stakeholders are the rightful focus of our first three strategic ambitions. This community must in turn be underpinned by a sustainable infrastructure that supports and innovative and exciting curriculum in line with regional and global needs. Accordingly, it is growth and innovation that form the focus of our fourth ambition. 

It is through an unrelenting commitment to these four ambitions that our college will be truly exceptional and continue to transform lives. We know that whatever the future brings, The Henley College is always questioning, seeking and growing. 

Now more than ever, we believe it is essential to ensure our students are ready for the ever-changing world outside of education. We know we are preparing students for future careers that may not yet even exist. To be ready for whatever comes next, we need to ensure that we have the people, resources and agile mindset to survive and thrive.
