At Worcester Sixth Form College, we are specialists in the education of 16-19 year olds and our staff are experts in meeting the needs of this age group. Every year we admit 800 or so students from the whole county of Worcestershire and from surrounding areas. This enables us to offer an exceptionally wide range of courses and flexible programmes in which any course can be combined with virtually any other course. Our students are highly successful, not just academically, but in many other kinds of endeavour, including sports, performing arts, music, Duke of Edinburgh, charity fund raising and a wide variety of other extra-curricular areas. Our performing arts productions regularly receive praise in the local press and are frequently selected for County showcase events.
We are proud to be an inclusive organisation where individual differences are accepted and valued and where everyone is able to fulfil their potential in a welcoming, safe and non threatening environment. Worcester Sixth Form College is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion for students, employers, community groups, staff, governors, members of the public and for others who come into contact with the College.
