Welcome to Ifield Community College


I am very proud to be Principal of ICC and even more proud of our students whose energy, enthusiasm, ideas and positivity make us a vibrant and creative place to learn. We value every individual student who joins us, whether during years 7-11 or within the Sixth Form, we strive to develop them as well rounded, skilled people with the confidence and enthusiasm to be successful in their chosen career and to be a positive member of society. At ICC our students come first.

The college is a calm, purposeful workplace and a happy environment. We promote tolerance and respect for each other alongside high ambition for every individual. We work hard to ensure that we develop the skills and personal attributes that will secure success throughout life.

To achieve our aims we value a genuine partnership with students and parents to ensure we teach and support each student in a dynamic and personal way. The only way to help each student is to know them well and respond to their personal needs. The Sixth Form teaching team are experienced and use their specific knowledge to inspire students using a variety of teaching approaches such as small group seminars, demonstrations, practical activities, e-learning based research, group debate and presentations, engaging students to achieve their very best. This was reflected in our year 13 100% pass rate in August 2015.

We hope that you will continue to be or become part of the success story and we look forward to receiving your application to join us in September.

Mr R Corbett  - Principal

About us

I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Ifield Community College’s Sixth Form. We pride ourselves on providing a very individualised programme for every student, where each and every student is supported to become the best they can be.
 
This is a challenging, supportive Sixth Form which encourages students to use your initiative, to become responsible learners and develop an approach to learning that will carry you through all stages of your life, whether you choose to follow higher education at university or seek employment, either directly or through apprenticeships.
 
There will be many factors that will influence your choice of courses. These will include your expected achievements at GCSE or equivalent qualifications, any future plans you may have and your own interests. You should take as much advice as you can from subject teachers, your form tutor and other staff at school.
 
As a broad guide, students following A Levels and/or BTEC Level 3 programmes choose to do four first year courses with a view to completing three of those subjects in the second year. If you are expecting to achieve five grade Cs at GCSE then your programme in the first year may include Maths or English resit GCSE as a fourth subject, or three rather than
four courses. Every student is important to us, so the Sixth Form college also offers BTEC level 2 qualifications for those students who need to enhance their point score to enable them to progress to level 3 study, completing Sixth Form qualifications over three years.
 
Mrs E Murphy-Dunn - Assistant Principal, Head of Sixth Form

Facilities available

Your modern Sixth Form Centre provides an independent learning base and social area for Sixth Formers with students enjoying the exclusive use of the Centre. There are multiple computers available for use with full internet connectivity as well as study areas. The expectation is that during lesson time this is a dedicated learning space with a quiet working ethos.

This area is a flexible space, providing a common room for break, lunch time and after school. There are relaxing areas to enjoy social time with friends and make use of the student run cafe. The aim of the student volunteers is to provide refreshments and light snacks to fundraise for student activities as determined by the student body themselves.

 

Additional support

The Sixth Form Centre is also where Sixth Form staff are based so that you have convenient access to student services and advice as well as pastoral care. There is a dedicated 'futures' zone with many university prospectus' and information on apprenticeships, careers and open events.

How to apply

If you want to apply for courses, you will need to contact Ifield Community College directly.

      In Sixth Form you can look forward to a diverse range of activities outside of the classroom. We will start the year with a team building event at Lodge Hill. Here you will come together as a year group, learn the value of independent
      thinking and practise problem solving. Throughout the year you will attend a 'Step Up' session once a fortnight.
      These sessions vary enormously and include outside speakers and visitors covering a wide range of topics
      including futures planning, sexual health, social media and employment opportunities.
       
      In the summer term you will have the chance to go on a residential trip to New York or Auschwitz in Poland.
      These trips run bi-annually and offer a great enrichment opportunity. You will be able to pay for these throughout
      the year. We also arrange university visits, a trip to London, a visit to a Higher Education Fair, an end-of-year ball
      and to go to the Safe Driving event. Throughout the school year there will also be plenty of opportunities to get
      involved in fundraising for a range of charities, support younger students through peer mentoring and become
      a role model in a variety of different ways.
       
      We are always looking for more opportunities to enrich your Sixth Form life and we listen to your student voice through the Sixth Form Committee to see how we can enhance your experience.
