History:
In 1959 the college gained academic status and was approved by the University of Manchester.
The college split, in 1963, to become Bolton Technical College and the Bolton Institute of Technology (now the university). Dr A G Peace was appointed principal of Bolton Technical College.
1971 an additional building was added to the side of the main building. A technology block and sports hall opened and this would later become the Excel Centre.

In 1982 all further education colleges in the borough merged, with the exception of the Institute of Technology, Manchester Road became Bolton Metropolitan College, Mr Colin Terry was appointed principal based at Clarence Street but moved to Manchester Road in September.

The Community Education Service was formed in 1990 and Bolton Council’s focus was now on vocational training and education.
Refurbishment gave the college a new guidance centre to offer new and existing students careers advice and in 1993 principal Terry Hogan officially opened the college’s revamped library and the college gained its independence from Bolton Council and becomes Bolton College.

On March 4, 2009 the Government gave the green light for the new building in Deane Road and on April 1, 2010 Bolton Community College was rebranded to Bolton College in preparation for the new building being erected. On September 6, 2010, Manchester Road closed its doors for the last time and on September 13, Deane Road opened its doors for the first day of term.
