We were the first Sixth Form College to be established in England, back in 1966. There are approximately 95 similar colleges and, as a whole, they are considered to be one of the jewels in the crown of the English education system. 

This college ranks among the best in many ways. We offer a very broad curriculum, consisting of more than 40 A Levels and 20 BTEC courses. In addition to the main qualifications, we have a very full range of enrichment qualifications, opportunities and activities available to help our students enhance their experience and prospects. All of this takes place within a wonderful campus that is just three years old now and provides our students with the most modern facilities and resources available.

Our exam results remained consistently high in 2015 and around 1,000 students left with qualifications that enabled them to progress to university and into high quality employment. Approximately 75 per cent of our students go on to study at universities around the country, and about 100 are accepted every year at elite institutions known as the Russell Group Universities.

The excellent achievement of our students is due to the huge amount of dedication and effort put in by our very experienced and high quality staff and by our students. We have specialist staff available to provide guidance and support and we greatly value the involvement of parents in helping the young people here to achieve their full potential. 

College life is quite different from school and brings with it more freedom and more responsibility, too. We believe that it provides excellent preparation for higher education or the world of work. The students are provided with everything they need to achieve the very best qualifications but there is so much more available to them to enable them to learn new skills, enjoy new experiences and to become the leaders of the future.
