Welcome to Riddlesdown Collegiate
I am delighted to introduce you to College VI – our excellent, specialist post 16 provision at Riddlesdown Collegiate. In College VI, we offer a dynamic and successful approach to post 16 studies through a combination of great teaching, superb facilities and outstanding care, support and guidance. School is about preparation – for university, for work and for life – and it is our determination that in College VI, students have the very best final preparation for the challenges and excitement of the future. As an integral part of the Collegiate, but with its own specialist facilities, College VI continues our approach of delivering the very highest academic standards, whilst provi ding excellent opportunities for students to develop wider skills and qualities through a wide-ranging extra-curricular programme designed to promote leadership, communication and teamwork. Examination results are consistently high across a wide range of courses. At the same time, students enjoy their time here and value the support they receive. Whilst most of this prospectus is addressed to students, acknowledging their increasing independence and responsibility, I hope that parents will equally find the content to be informative as important decisions are best taken by families together. This is another important and exciting time of transition for students and I am confident that in College VI, they will be supported to achieve their very best, enjoy fantastic learning experiences and prepare fully for their next steps in life
There has been a successful Sixth Form here at Riddlesdown since 1996. We currently have over 300 students in our Sixth Form College - most of whom are studying AS and A Levels. Our results continue to improve and we had our best set of results ever last year. Teaching is desribed as Good by OFSTED and students make better than average progress as a result of this. We encourage all of our students to play an active role in the life of the Sixth Form College - there is a huge range of opportunities to enable them to do so. Many of our students also choose to get involved in the wider life of the whole Collegiate as well. This means that you can have the best of both worlds at Riddlesdown - a Sixth Form college atmosphere with all of the opportunities, advantages and facilities to be found in a large school.
