Statements

The college’s mission statement is as follows:

The College aims to be an outstanding provider of full-time education for 16-19 year olds, embracing diversity and creating excellent opportunities for all. Staff and students will work hard to maximise their potential and promote individual achievement at the highest level.

The college also has an equality and diversity statement reflecting its students:

The College is committed to ensuring that all its students are valued equally and given an equal chance to succeed. All students, staff and visitors are treated with respect and dignity irrespective of their age, class, disablitiy, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation. The College has a Code of Respect and any form of discrimination, bullying or harassment is totally unacceptable in the College.

Courses

The college offers many programmes of study for students of different abilities and talents. Qualifications offered include:

In addition to these, students are required to take at least one enrichment course in their first year. Whilst not a qualification in itself, this fills the student’s timetable and gives them the opportunity to explore their interests. In addition, most Upper Sixth students are required to take General Studies.

Enrichment courses

The college offers a range of complementary enrichment course for students to study alongside their chosen qualifications. Many of these courses integrate a Key Skills in Communications qualification, which is necessary for those who achieved a grade C or below in English at GCSE level. If the student’s chosen enrichment course does not incorporate Key Skills, then they must study this subject separately in order to obtain a Key Skills qualification.

In recent years, the college has made it complusory part of its education to students for them to receive a qualification equal to a Level 2 ICT qualification, and Level 2 Communications. However, these will not be necessary if these qualifications have already been received in any form of previous education in a way that deems it irrelevant to study them at the college.

Buildings

The college is divided into nine main buildings, or blocks:

College Council

The full council meets every half term to feedback from each committee and discuss/vote upon issues that the representatives bring from their tutor group members.
