You will be joining a highly successful, innovative and nationally recognised sixth form college. The College was awarded the UK Sixth Form College of the Year by the TES in 2018 and this followed being graded outstanding in all areas by OFSTED in December 2016. All staff play a vital role in the experience that students have with us and ultimately their success.

The College currently has a 16 to 19-year-old student population of 1450. Demand for places for places at the college is very high and as a result the college has recently expanded with the opening of a 1.7m new state of the art teaching facility in September 2021. A further brand new 3 storey classroom block is opening in April 2023 as part of the college’s expansion project.

In response to the pandemic and disruption to the learning of students the college introduced a new timetable in 2021/2022 to combat the deficits that students have. This includes teaching time increasing by 60 minutes each week we are confident that the 5.5 hours students receive each week is one of, if not the highest in the country. Whilst student teaching time has increased, the new timetable has reduced the overall teaching time for teachers each week. Full time teachers will teach a maximum of 4 classes, 4 times a week and teachers have their own groups, we do not have shared teaching groups at the college.
