A message from our Head of College

I am immensely proud of the inclusive culture of our college in which our specialist teachers prepare students to learn through innovative and challenging teaching.  The wide ranging support offered allows students to make excellent progress and prepares them fully for the next steps – be that in education, training or in employment.

We focus on the needs of 16-19 year olds, providing a well-resourced college environment that encourages learning. Our priority is placed on high quality support and guidance to students in their academic and personal development. We see students thrive at S6C; the care and guidance given to students is unwavering. We know each one of our students, and as they develop their journey into adulthood we see them blossom and strive for their dreams to become reality. Everyone is special, unique and capable.

At S6C we are committed to providing an excellent education for the success of every student and our vision is that we want every student to be the best version of themselves that they can be.  Every student should be valued, nurtured, challenged and supported. ‘It’s all about you’ embraces the experience we want every individual to feel.  Every student at S6C is introduced to a series of high expectations of themselves and of others. At S6C we strive for success; so Aspiration is promoted and encouraged. This is enacted and modelled by staff, and students are supported in being active participants in this journey.

I am very proud to lead S6C and am passionate about ensuring that students are well cared for, that they make excellent progress and that we help them discover their talents and prepare them for life after college. It is important to us that students leave S6C with the ability to think deeply, act with kindness and integrity and take responsibility for a rich life ahead.
