We organise and hold exams throughout the year at Ratcliffe College which is easily accessible from all directions. Situated on the A46 seven miles north of Leicester, we are close to Loughborough, Melton Mowbray and the city of Nottingham.

Access by train is just as easy due to the college being 20 minutes from Leicester’s railway station, with its regular services to London and the North.

The M1 and M42 motorways bring Birmingham (one hour) and East Midlands (30 minutes) airports within easy reach also. In addition, London-Heathrow and London-Stansted are within travelling distance too. As a result, this means Ratcliffe College is located within the national motorway network.
