We are committed to ensuring that every single one of our students is successful.
This summer, our students achieved over 600 A*, A and B grades at A Level. Students and parents are overwhelmingly complimentary about us – recently, 87% of students said they would recommend their course to others.
Nationally, students at sixth form colleges are highly successful in their studies and Worcester is no exception. The Government’s Performance Tables indicate that students at Worcester Sixth Form College perform well in comparison to the Worcestershire County average, and recent government data showed that Worcester Sixth Form College students on AS Level, A Level and Vocational Level 3 had made better than expected progress.
The reason for this success is that we are specialists in the education of 16-19 year olds and this means that we offer many advantages to students in this age group including:
• The widest choice of A Level subjects in Worcestershire
• A range of well-resourced vocational courses, which can be taken on their own or alongside A Levels
• A highly flexible timetable, through which any subject can be mixed with almost any other subject
• Staff who are experts in 16-19 education
• Excellent teaching with outstanding results
• First rate pastoral support
• Consistently highly rated careers and Higher Education guidance, including courses specifically aimed at those seeking university places in some of the most competitive degree subjects, such as Medicine
• Many opportunities for gifted and talented students to extend their programmes and develop their talents further
• A huge range of extra-curricular activities, including sports, performing arts and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme
• A long track record of supporting students with learning needs in achieving their full potential
• A college environment, not a school
