Humanities students will need to have GCSE English Language at Grade C or 5 or above.

Science and Maths students will need to have GCSE Maths at grade C or grade 5 or above and English Language at grade C or 4 or above.

Ofsted 2013

“The curriculum is broad for a college of its type and, in line with its mission, meets the needs of the local community and its students very well. The wide range of GCE AS- and A-level subjects enables students to make sensible choices.”

“Teachers make good use of assessment in lessons to identify students' starting points and monitor their subsequent progress.”

“Tutorials are good. They provide a highly effective way of monitoring students' progress towards achieving their targets. Students value the extra workshop sessions that they can attend if they need extra help. Equality and diversity are promoted well in lessons.”

“Students make good progress and success rates are high in most subjects.”
