What is a Sixth Form College?
A Sixth Form College is an establishment which specialises in delivering education to 16-19 year olds. There is a total of 94 sixth form colleges in the country and it is the highest performing sector for delivering A Level and BTEC provision nationally.
We are the only sixth form college in Wirral. Our results currently place us in the top 10% nationally for A Level provision and our specialist subject teachers are able to devote their time to delivering A Level & BTEC programmes with 100% focus.
We are a stepping stone to University and the world of work, encouraging our students to develop their independent study skills, whilst maintaining a high level of support. We deliver tutorial programmes aimed at developing life skills in preparation for exams and further progression and provide each individual student with their own tutor to assist in managing their workload. Over 300 students progress to University from us each year, more than any other sixth form in Wirral.
We have invested £3.5 million into our facilities in recent years to develop an excellent learning environment for our students. Our use of technology and mobile learning won national acclaim from the Learning and Skills Network and we provide students free access to technological packages, such as Microsoft Office.
