The Sixth Form College is celebrating another year of outstanding exam success for students.
We offer over 50 A Level 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. A number of Additional Studies courses are also available.

We aim to be a college of sanctuary, a place where everyone feels welcome, safe and supported throughout their studies. We all have difficulties and face challenges in our lives at times and any one of us may find we need to seek help or support. There are a number of ways students can find help. The first port of call should be their personal tutor, but we have a range of places where students can find the support they may need.
The College is a vibrant young adult community and there is a great deal going on. A very wide-ranging programme of Additional Studies and extra-curricular activities is available, providing a large number of sporting, creative and cultural opportunities to all students.
At the Sixth Form College, we teach all of our courses in specialist sixth form accommodation on one purpose-built site, located in a very accessible central area of Colchester. There are seven separate buildings, all specifically focused upon the academic teaching, learning and wider experiences appropriate for 16-19 year olds.
