Why come to Hugh Baird College instead of staying at School?

As we are a College, many things are different to school. First and foremost, it is a young adult environment. School doesn’t suit everyone - the informality and independence you get at College is more suitable for many young people, and no uniform (unless your course choice requires appropriate professional dress). So, if some aspects of school are not to your liking, you will enjoy the freedom of College life!

Get Stuck In

You’ll have loads of practical, hands-on lessons, great if you prefer to learn by actually doing something rather than just sitting behind a desk all day.

Focused on You

We aim to have smaller class sizes than most schools. We also have a Teaching and Learning Assistant in each class, helping you to receive more personal help and attention. If you have additional needs, we also have fantastic support available.


Industry standard facilities in many areas and creative learning environments with experienced, specialist and qualified teaching staff.


We have a dedicated centre based in Bootle with great transport links.


Our technical, trade and professional staff are experts in their own specialist area and have up-to-date industry knowledge so they can directly pass on the skills employers are looking for.
