Our Mission Statement; and admission policy; Our 'Home - College Agreement' document gives full details how each students is expected to operate. We are a successful Sixth Form College providing a smaller learning environment for students with the benefit of excellent modern facilities, smaller group sizes in most subjects, and the community of students of the full age range.
There is a purpose-built Sixth Form College with a computer suite and Science laboratories, as well as Tutorial rooms. A well furbished Learning Centre is included. Students will mainly be taught in this area but move to specialist areas for specialist subjects. We espcially have superb facilities for teaching Music, Art, Media, ICT and Sport, with a new dance studio and fitness suite opened in September 2007.
Our Sixth Form College is led by a Director of Learning, with Progess Leaders for Year 12 and 13 students. This reflects our central focus upon the learning and achievement of every student in our College. Each student has a fProgress tutor for guidance, support and celebration. We monitor progress frequently and work in partnership with students and parents to enable each student to reach their potential. We provide mentoring for students who need further support. We support the progression of students at 17, 18 and 19 with most students gaining paces at university. We work in collaboration with Connexions and Universities including Oxford and Cambridge.
Full details of the success of our students are included on our College website. We are especially delighted by the proportion of students annually progressing onto university. Particular success has been gained in specialist areas of Art, Sport, Media, English and Business. We are continuing to bring success in Vocational courses especially related to our Specialist Sports College status.
