Top 6 reasons to study here
Fantastic state-of-the-art facilities
We recognise the importance of high quality teaching and learning and have recently invested £30m in our new facilities.
A study programme that's right for you
We offer you the best of both worlds - an adult learning environment and a stimulating and supportive study programme. You can choose over 60 academic and vocational courses and can even mix the two, to create a study programme that's right for you.
Our 2014 A Level pass rate is a phenomenal 99%. Our supportive teaching staff encourage all students to make the mosty out of their time with us, which was reflected in a survey we undertook in April 2013 where 95% of our students rated our teaching as good or outstanding.
Outstanding progression to higher education
We foster excellent progression opportunities with the UK's leading universities including Oxford and Cambridge. Our dedicated Careers team provide excellent advice on progression opportunities - either on to university, into an apprenticeship or into the world of work. We also provide additional support through our Very Able and Talented programme for students showing particular talents or very high GCSE scores.
Exceptional student services and support
We aim to give our students the best possible learning experience in an environment that actively promotes mutual respect. Every student has a Pastoral Support Tutor who helps them in all aspects of College life and encourages them to get the most out of their time with us.
Thriving student community
We offer a wide and varied enrichment programme which includes music, dance, drama, sport, voluntary and community opportunities as well as a range of clubs and societies. There's also a thriving Student Executive who provide valuable input into what goes on at the College.
