Why Us?

Lighting the path to your future success

At our Sixth Form, you will have the opportunity to carve out a career path that’s right for you by choosing to fit your studies around one of our six unique Pathways. These Pathways group our various courses based on the career prospects they can lead to, ensuring you’ll be in the best possible position to achieve your individual career ambitions when you take the next step in your journey.

That’s why, when you choose to study with us, you will have much more independence, both academically and socially. Our excellent study facilities will also help you develop the skills you need to be successful, both in your time with us and throughout your future career.

You can choose to study three subjects from the options available for each pathway. You can learn a little bit about our six course Pathways on the next two pages, as well as considering which one best suits your individual interests and aspirations.
