Yale College is a further education college based in the middle of Wrexham.
Its main Grove Park campus centres around the old Wrexham & East Denbighshire War Memorial Hospital, although the majority of buildings now used by the college are relatively new.
They provide adult training, higher education and workforce development courses which includes A levels, NVQs, National Diplomas and apprenticeships.
Yale Grammar and Technical School as it was back then was originally established as a state school on Crispin Lane in 1950 before becoming a sixth form college in 1973.
The college in its current existence opened in 1998 on the Grove Park site after a three year refurbishment process having moved from Crispin Lane.
The Grove Park site has a reception, careers advice and guidance, shop, cafe, restaurant, hair salon and theatre all on campus.
The college also has its own student magazine called Zed and a radio station.
Yale College is named after Elihu Yale, founder of Yale University in Connecticut, who is buried in St Giles Parish Church in Wrexham.
The Wrexham college was famously the subject of a trademark infringement suit from the American university over the use of the name in 1999.
As a result Yale in Wrexham must now be referred to as “Yale College in Wrexham”.
