Principal's Message

Welcome to the Gambia College. I am delighted that you are interested in the College and hope you will find your journey through our website informational, inspirational and well worth your time.

Gambia College is a remarkable place for learning, envisaged by its founder. We offer a world-class education grounded in creative and critical thinking, and relevant to modern day global challenges, The Gambia College is the oldest Tertiary Education Institute in The Gambia and is the only Institute that train teachers at the Nursery, Lower Basic and Upper basic Schools level. We also train the Registered Nurses, the midwives, the Public Health Officers and the Agricultural Extension workers in the country.

Perhaps this distinctiveness is best represented by our human capital and our character. Our multinational families and staff aspire to create a microcosm of the world we want our children to inherit. Our community, both at school and at home, shapes our students’ dispositions. Gambia College is consciously and explicitly global in its reach, multilingual and multicultural in both belief and practice, and a place where students, families, faculty and staff share their diverse experiences.

Maintaining our position of leadership requires that we continue to improve. Our teachers find professional guidance through many sources; in particular our sister institutes in the The University of the Gambia community. We recognize that teaching and learning is in rapid evolution and must take into account new technologies and the need for continuous adaptation.

In the future, Gambia College will continue to nurture young talents to serve the republic of the Gambia society, under our motto: "Enter to Learn Ready to Serve".

For me personally, there has never been a more exciting time to work in the field of education. I observe our high school and wonder what schools will be like for them as they near graduation. I invite you to join me in anticipation of their future.
