About HMP Coldingley:
Coldingley was opened in 1969 as a Category B training prison. In 1993 it was re-designated as a Category C training prison and since 2013 has since been designated a working prison. Coldingley is focused on the resettlement of prisoners. It provides a framework to support the achievement of realistic resettlement goals by offering opportunities to prisoners willing to work hard and accept responsibility for achieving those goals.
The Education Department is small and friendly and designed to feel like a College rather than a prison. Staff pride themselves in empowering learners to achieve their full potential and are able to attain the qualifications, and learn the skills necessary, to successfully resettle back into the community on release and secure employment. We recognise that many of the learners in our care have usually not had the best start in life and have not engaged with education in the past. We aim to make the lessons interesting, relevant, enjoyable and worthwhile to our learners in order to inspire them to achieve.
