Celebrating 125 years of history

"We are delighted to be celebrating our 125th year here at Worksop College - 125 years of colourful  history which we all share a part in.

We will be hosting a full programme of events throughout the course of the year, providing ample opportunities for you to be a part of the celebrations.

I am incredibly proud to be part of such a varied and vibrant community and very much look forward to welcoming as many of you back as possible as we look back over 125 years and move forward in to the future." 

Dr John Price

The future starts here

Since Worksop College opened its doors in 1895, bursaries have played an important part in the school’s commitment to providing a first-class education for as many promising pupils as our resources will allow. 

We believe Worksop College is at its greatest when we are a diverse school, one with a healthy social mix and a breadth of talent, character and backgrounds. Our ability to offer bursaries lies at the heart of this and our aim is to grow the Bursary Appeal Fund into a sustainable source of funding that will support a greater number of deserving, passionate and talented pupils on bursary places for years to come.
Our target is to grow the fund for bursaries by £125,000 in the first year as we mark 125 years since the school first opened its doors. We cannot do this alone and our goal can only be achieved through the collective, generous support of you, the family of Worksop College.

Chapel Appeal

Arguably one of the most iconic parts of the college, the Chapel has, throughout the years, stood at the centre of our community. Opened in 1911, the magnificent building accommodates all pupils and staff with regular services, as well as providing a place for quiet thought and reflection.The Chapel has a special place in the hearts of many of our former students, who often return to special events, and sometimes choose to be married or to have their children baptised here.As we head in to the next 125 years we are looking to launch an appeal to support the ongoing maintenance of one of the college's most iconic buildings.
