Petroc is marking its 70th anniversary

Petroc is marking its 70th anniversary this year and wants former students to get in touch to share their achievements as part of the celebrations.

Petroc was officially born back in August 2008 when North Devon College and East Devon College merged together. Both colleges had long histories of serving the community and Petroc is proud to continue their legacies of excellence in both teaching and learning.

Now, to mark its Platinum anniversary, the college has delved into its extensive archives to share rarely seen pictures, prospectuses, and even glass plate negatives from over the years.

If you have memories of North Devon Technical College, East Devon Technical College, East Devon College, North Devon College, or indeed Petroc, the staff at the college would love to hear from you. They would like to know about your life at Petroc, for example, the names of your favourite lecturers, any memorable moments, whether you won any awards, and where your studies took you in life.

They would also be fascinated to see any of your photos or newspaper cuttings from your time as a student.

Contact Petroc on 01271 345291 or email petroc70@petroc.ac.uk and somebody will be in touch for a chat.
