Macmillan College was set up as a City Technology College in 1989 with the aim to improve the economic prospects and social opportunities for pupils in inner city Middlesbrough. In 2006 we converted to an academy and currently have over 1600 pupils on roll.

Our mission statement is represented by our motto 'Inspiring every student to succeed' and is founded on the following key values:

  • Pursuit of excellence
  • Developing a whole education
  • Promoting pupil health and wellbeing
  • Inspiring pupils for future employment
These four concepts combined with our aim for an ambitious, coherent, progressive, equitable and engaging curriculum; and knowledge of the local employment market, have driven our plans to create a principled curriculum.

We aim to give all pupils opportunities to gain knowledge, skills and experiences in order to be confident, successful learners both now and throughout their lives. We believe strongly in the transformative power of education and seek to empower young people to meet future challenges and to foster a love of learning.
