The morning is aimed at current Year 10 students considering their options for Sixth Form entry in September 2025. It will provide the opportunity for students to spend the morning with us, experience Year 12 lessons and discover more about the rigors of Sixth Form study and the pathways it leads to.

As a College we are an alternative to the traditional school environment.  The setting is more adult and informal (no uniform and students call teachers by their first name), but that doesn’t mean that our academic expectations are any less.  Our teachers are A Level subject specialists, as they are focused on A Level teaching and the demands of A Level study on students.  With an average class size of 9, students receive a very personalised journey while studying with us.
