We want you to have a clear understanding of life at College so that you can make the right decisions about what will be best for you.  

Whether your school has a sixth form or not, you should definitely be looking at all post-16 providers and options available. Consider course choice, teaching quality, support services, facilities, progression opportunities, atmosphere, university /career destinations and enrichment.
