We are very proud of our Sixth Form provision and, in particular, of the support and guidance that we give to all our students. It is big enough for us to be able to offer you a wide range of courses and opportunities, but small enough for us to know you well and to be able to support you and meet your individual needs, whether that be financial support or support to achieve your highest aspirations.

We foster a safe and welcoming environment, where students are nurtured and supported both academically and with the aspects of life that are pertinent to those in Years 12, 13 and 14. There is a strong feeling of a Sixth Form community as we have a separate building and a team of staff to support you in every way. Sixth Form students find that the relationship they have with staff here changes as they move in to Year 12. In contrast to many of the college institutions, class sizes are much smaller, with more individualised and personalised tuition. You will be one student in a few hundred rather than fifteen hundred! You will be a big fish in a small pond, where staff know you and have an open-door policy so that you always feel you have someone to talk with. You will work in conjunction with our Sixth Form staff, who will consult you on your views and opinions on a whole rage of matters, in line with young adult status.

Financial Support

The 16-19 Bursary Fund: If you need some financial support to help stay in education, you can apply for the 16-19 Bursary Fund. Further details can be found below.

Transport Bursary Fund: We do not want the costs of transport to be a barrier to any student wishing to continue their studies with us in Years 12 and 13. We have therefore introduced a Post 16 Transport Bursary Fund, details of which can be found below.
