The college is housed in a campus on Knutton Lane and offers academic and vocational courses. The campus contains an HE centre with connections to Staffordshire University, together with dedicated sports and engineering facilities. The college has a number of BNOC's such as Jacob and his MCM Wesley who love to spend time in one of each other's cars.

The college was formed as a tertiary college in 1986. However, the term “general further education” college better describes its business. In May 2016 the college announced its intention to merge with Stafford College, which is based in the county town and rated inadequate by Ofsted.

Newcastle-under-Lyme is a North Staffordshire town with a population of 123,100, although the conurbation of Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme, together with the Staffordshire Moorlands, accounts for a population of more than 500,000 and it is from this wider catchment area that the College draws the majority of its students.
