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 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, including the well established International Baccalaureate qualification. A number of Additional Studies courses are also available.
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.
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 form tutor, but we have a range of places where students can find the support they may need.
The Careers Department has a specialist team of staff and many resources to help you to make decisions about your future. Resources are used in the weekly tutorial programme and special events are planned throughout the year to ensure you make informed choices about your future. You may also book careers appointments regarding advice and guidance, on a one-to-one basis, at any time.
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.
Our new 2018 Prospectus is now available for immediate download from our online library of key documents for viewing or printing. Alternatively, printed copies of our new Prospectus are also available upon request or at our Open Evenings in October.
