Meet Our Principal

Welcome to Riseholme College, a part of Bishop Burton

Our Principal - Jeanette Dawson OBE

The home of first class land-based vocational education in Lincolnshire.

I am very proud to say that Riseholme College is one of the finest land-based Colleges in the country, offering first class, first choice vocational education across a wide range of land-based subject areas, spanning apprenticeships through to degree programmes.

If you choose to come and study one of the many courses at the College, you are guaranteed to receive the very best training in the sector and have access to outstanding resources, including the new state-of-the-art Showground Campus featuring the latest in precision technology, purpose-built engineering workshops and a world class Animal Management Unit.

Our commitment to combining vocational experience with academic studies in a wonderful campus setting provides students with a unique opportunity. We set high standards and expect our students to succeed. And that’s reflected in our fantastic success rates – some of the highest in the country in fact.

Our students benefit from hands-on training from day one.

The College's team of staff are focused on ensuring that every student achieves their academic goals and is equipped with the necessary skills to succeed in future employment. Year after year, our students manage to surpass our high expectations.

As a parent myself, I know only too well both the excitement and apprehension that can be felt by students and their parents and carers when choosing a college.

As part of Bishop Burton College in East Yorkshire, we undoubtedly have some of the best facilities in the country across our campuses, all of which have a positive impact on the success of our students.
