Exam Results

Our students achieved outstanding A and AS level results in this summer’s examination series. The levels of achievement were excellent and above national average levels. A detailed document outlining the College's excellent student achievements and progression in the 2015 academic year is also still available for download from this website.


We offer over 50 AS courses - probably the largest range of options available in any college in the country. Options include familiar subjects but also many that are not usually available at GCSE, including the well established International Baccalaureate qualification. A number of Additional Studies courses are also available.

IB Diploma

The International Baccalaureate Diploma programme will be of interest to those students who want to maintain a very broad range of subjects. It is designed for well-motivated students with balanced GCSE qualifications and is highly regarded by employers and higher education, not only in the UK but also internationally.


Our new 2017 Prospectus is now available for immediate download from our online library of key documents for viewing or printing. Printed copies of our new Prospectus are currently in preparation and will be available prior to our Open Evenings in October.


News stories covering the educational, sporting, cultural and charitable activities and achievements of the students at the College. This includes details of ongoing projects to improve our environmental and sustainable position via a variety of tasks and initiatives.


Downloadable documents for parents and students, including the Students Handbook Charter and Diary, Additional Studies Handbook, Prospectus 2016, the 2013 Ofsted Inspection Report, Student Leavers' Notes, Parents' Handbook, occasional Students' Notes, and more.
