We have a strong Sixth Form where results and performance are consistently excellent, this summer seeing the best ever results! The Sixth Form is a special and distinctive part of the College community and we are extremely proud of its success. The majority of students who join our Sixth Form go on to study at university and we have a very good track record of supporting students to gain entry into some of the leading universities in the country.
