With that in mind, we have created a dedicated Advance Centre which includes its own common room, refectory and study area, just for sixth formers. This gives you the space you need to do joint work, get creative or just have a break. You will also have access to the brilliant library with its specific section for careers and higher education, as well as all the resources you’ll need for your courses. You will be able to use all of our sports facilities, regardless of whether you’re studying a sports related course or not. These include:
