The Local Area
From historic links with the Industrial Revolution to our success with the mighty Preston North End and Sir Tom Finney, beautiful green spaces and plenty of entertainment, there’s something for everyone in Preston.
Recent months have seen a £1.2 million investment into the regeneration of the city centre’s Winckley Square, along with another multi-million investment into the biggest improvement programme Preston has ever seen. Changes have been made to many elements of the city centre including Fishergate, the Bus Station, the Markets Quarter and the Guild Hall.
The city’s reputation as a shopping destination doesn’t go amiss – with two shopping centres and a number of high street brands, you can spend all day exploring. But it’s not just about the famous brands. Preston also has some bustling indoor and outdoor markets offering fresh produce and boutique items of their own.
Then there’s our sample of traditional and international food on offer, with lots of restaurants, cafes and tea rooms. Not to mention the city’s Purple Flag Award, which promises quality entertainment and a safe, yet vibrant night out with plenty of pubs, clubs, theatre, arts, comedy and live music to choose from.
There’s always something happening in the Guild City. Find out more here.
As a Catholic Sixth Form College, we strive to be a centre of educational excellence for the community built on faith, respect and trust. We celebrate diversity amongst all of our students and staff, and we seek to nurture the gifts of each individual through high-quality teaching, learning and dedicated pastoral care.
Cardinal Newman College is a community which aims to live out the gospel values of service and love.
