This year, we’re celebrating 90 years at our Ormskirk Campus. 90 years in which we’ve never let beautifully landscaped grass grow under our feet. In that time, we’ve inspired minds, introduced outstanding facilities and changed futures.

We’ve made a difference by doing things differently, broadening access to knowledge on an outstanding campus that gives our students the space and opportunities to succeed. With our exceptional teaching and award-winning surroundings, our students couldn’t be better placed to go out and achieve great things in the world.

To celebrate 90 years of Edge Hill in Ormskirk, we have a year-long programme of activity planned. This includes a series of events in which we invite Honorary Doctors and alumni back to campus to give lectures, workshops and performances. They will share expert insights into topics including law, the arts, nuclear power and diversity in education.

Below is just a flavour of what is coming up, and we’d love to welcome you back to our Ormskirk campus for some of these.
