Welcome to Paston Sixth Form College
Choosing where to go after school is an extremely important decision and you will want to ensure that you are making the right choice. Paston Sixth Form College has an outstanding reputation. This was confirmed by Ofsted in January 2016 when they said that Paston students “enjoy their lessons and develop very good attitudes towards learning and independent study. (They) benefit from teachers’ high levels of specialist skills and the passion they have for their subjects. As a result, a high proportion of learners are inspired to continue their studies in higher education.”
We look forward to celebrating your success as you work with us to take the next step in fulfilling your dreams. I hope you would like to be part of our future and I look forward to welcoming you to Paston Sixth Form College.
We value and recognise the potential of every individual student offering a range of A level, vocational and BTEC courses. One of our many strengths is the professional support we offer and by taking time to understand your goals and aspirations, we will guide and support you in obtaining the best possible results for your future.
Since 2013 Paston has successfully gained £4m in government improvement funds. Students now benefit from the new Student Services, Study Centre, industrial specification science labs and the newly refurbished Art and Theatre facility. These new buildings are a great environment for learning and inspiring creativity.
Paston provides you with expert advice and guidance, care and support to help you choose your courses, settle into College, be successful in your studies and move on to your next step. This is one of the strengths of a sixth form college, where students are all at the same stage in their education.
You will have a weekly meeting with your tutor who is an expert in advising and supporting sixth form students. Tutors are responsible for your personal welfare, development and success at College and will be your first point of contact for many issues.
- help you settle in to College
- provide you with information and advice e.g. Bursary and financial support, study and time management, getting further help
- discuss your academic progress and help you agree how to improve
- listen to your ideas and suggestions about College
