Welcome to Long Road Sixth Form College
Come to our Open Evening on 18th and 19th October 2017.
You can watch subject-specific videos on our course pages.
Are you ready for Long Road? It will be different here from what you’ve been used to. For you, that’s probably the whole point – it’s time to leave school behind, to make a fresh start and take the next step up.
We are a specialist sixth form college. That means all 2,300 students here are aged 16-19. They’re all here studying to get the qualifications they need to progress into university or employment. It’s busy, exciting and diverse, but it’s also friendly, open and inclusive.
What you’ll notice here from day one is how you are treated – as an adult. Possibly for the first time you’ll have free time during the day – time we trust you will spend productively. In return for the greater freedom this brings, you’ll be expected to study and organise yourself in a new, more mature way, taking greater responsibility for your own studies.
This might all sound a little daunting but in no time you’ll have new friends, new interests, and there’ll be no looking back!
You can choose from an unrivalled selection of courses: A levels, Level 3 Diplomas, Level 2 Diplomas and GCSEs. What's more: you can mix and match to get the perfect combination of courses for what you want to do.
We have superb facilties:
a modern, open-access, zoned Learning Resource Centre
a state-of-the-art Performing Arts studio
computer suites for Computing, ICT, Maths, Media, Film, Photography, Design Technology and Art
well-equipped laboratories for Science
darkrooms for Photography
studios and workshops for Art and Design Technology
a large Sports Hall and adjoining fitness suite and weights area
a dedicated Student Centre
a newly-extended Food Centre
We understand the personal and educational challenges students encounter, and we are committed to mkaking sure that all students have the same chance to succeed.
Our Academic Support department has a team of qualified specialoist teachers who will work with you and your family before you start to see what extra help you need and plan your programme. Please talk to us at Open Evening for more information.
