Eccles College was an incorporated further education college in Eccles, Greater Manchester, England. It opened in 1973, and ceased to function as an independent body on 1 January 2009. The site continues to function under new management, as the Eccles Centre of Salford City College.

The site currently provides AS and A level courses, amongst others. Students may also retake their GCSEs at the college. As an independent college Eccles had an average pass rate above the national average.[1]


The merger of Eccles College, Salford College and Pendleton College took place on 1 January 2009, forming the new Salford City College.[2] Eccles College and Salford College had their corporations dissolved,[3] and all assets and staff transferred to Pendleton's administration. Pendleton College was then renamed to 'Salford City College'.
