Why should I choose a sixth form college rather than a school sixth form?

We are Sixth Form Specialists – all of our teaching, facilities and support services are specially designed for 16-19 year olds and their specific needs, and run by experts with years of experience working with this age group.
  • Unrivalled Course Choice – because we are solely focused on teaching 16-19 year olds, we can offer a range of courses most schools simply can’t.
  • Preparation for independence – outside of lesson time we support students to work independently, and manage their study in a way that best suits them. We treat students like adults and help prepare them for life at university or in work.
  • New Opportunities – our students relish the chance to meet a new group of like-minded people, make new friends and explore new opportunities in a fresh environment.
