Welcome to Plume College


Moving into post-16 education is an exciting and challenging step and is increasingly necessary in the very competitive market for employment and for university places. This move is one that is made by the great majority of Plume students in Year 11 and this number is increasing each year - we have record numbers of students in College this year and expect even more in September 2014.

Plume College is highly successful, continually improving and it is one of the largest Sixth Forms in Essex. It offers a very wide range of courses and excellent opportunities for students to further their studies in a very well supported environment. Recently enlarged purpose built facilities serve the College, with students having their own shop shared with teaching staff, common rooms, large study room equipped with modern computers and internet access and their own, fully equipped Learning and Information Centre.

An experienced team of tutors and an increased team of College staff are there to provide guidance and support for students with their studies and to help them to prepare for Higher Education and employment. Our induction programme means that all students are able to settle quickly into both the academic and social life of the College.

Plume students who join the College enjoy both the greater freedom and the responsibility of working as a post-16 student whilst being supported by staff who have known them during their time at the school. In recent years we have welcomed an increasing number of students from other schools and these students have settled in rapidly and successfully, for example a recent Head Girl joined the College from another local school.
