Welcome to Walkden Sixth Form College - Salford City College
Thank you for your interest in Walkden Sixth Form College
In Summer 2013 our Advanced Vocational students again achieved a 100% pass rate, with the vast majority of students getting into their first choice university or successfully gaining employment. We work with students, and their parents, to ensure that students stay on track and reach their full potential.
Being a Vocational course specialist, Walkden Sixth Form Centre has an array of outstanding facilities to support students in their studies. This includes a commercial restaurant; The Glass House, Sports Facilities, Art Studios, Hair & Beauty Salons to name just a few. Plus, as you would expect, our staff have outstanding industry experience meaning students can be confident that they are being taught by experts.
We have excellent contacts with industry professionals, and incorporate work experience into most of our courses, which is of benefit to students as, in this tough employment market, we are able to provide students with opportunities to connect with potential future employers and gain sound advice on how to progress in to their chosen careers.
External visits are a regular feature of college life for our students. We give students the opportunity to take part in competition work and showcase their work at The Skills Show and other major events throughout the country and beyond.
Students are also encouraged to take part in fund raising activities and community projects which, as well as being fun, will help them build their confidence and skills.
Walkden Sixth Form College is a fantastic place in which to learn and I look forward to meeting you in the near future at our upcoming events.
Walkden Sixth Form Centre is located on Walkden Road in Worsley.
