Welcome to Hailsham Community College

Thanks for taking a look at Hailshm Sixth Form!

Leave any preconceived ideas or opinions behind, and lets us show you how we can give you the very best Post 16 experience possible - where quality teaching and learning in the classroom is matched with incredible extra curricular pastoral and enrichment experiences.

Our vision is a simple one...

  • Hailsham Sixth Form exists to provide an outstanding all round education for its students and prepare them for their future.
  • We want everyone that joins us to be valued, supported and contribute to the future success of the college.
  • We are one of the best Post 16 providers in the whole of Sussex and with scores that are past national expectations.

About us

There are some core principles and values that underpin Hailsham Sixth Form and all that we stand for. We call it taking the next STEP.


Students are supported every step of the way. Academic, pastoral, career development or subject based, students believe in the faith we have in them and are confident in talking to us. This means potential problems are identified early and can be quickly resolved.


We believe in a simple principle – YOU learn best when a teacher is in front of YOU.  However, developing the ability to learn independently is also key.


We value the development of well-rounded young people at Hailsham Sixth Form as highly as we do what goes on inside the classroom.


Academic success = progress for you. We gain a deep knowledge of our students so that they move onto positive outcomes.
