Blackpool Sixth’s course range is extremely wide with A Levels and BTEC options. Students are able to put together a programme which exactly matches their interests and future ambitions.
Summer 2015 saw the completion of a £29 million development to our campus which has created an excellent learning environment for students.
In 2011 we were awarded Teaching School status in partnership with Hodgson Academy. The Fylde Coast Teaching School Alliance will take a national and regional lead in both shaping and delivering the training and professional development of current and future generations of teachers. Working with high quality graduates and educational leaders of the future will enable us to maintain and improve our teaching standards to the benefit of all our students.
Welcome to Blackpool Sixth!
As the principal, I am delighted to share with you information about our college.
We are a high achieving, specialist sixth form college built on a culture of excellence and high aspirations. The college prides itself on its relentless focus on high quality teaching and learning from a team of dedicated and highly qualified staff. Our state-of-the-art facilities offer the very best learning experience and our students tell us that support for students is truly outstanding. Additionally, students benefit from an extensive range of enrichment activities that widen their college experience and help develop valuable knowledge and skills to support successful progression. We have strong links with local employers and many of our students benefit from work placements and expert advice from industry professionals during their time with us.
Our focus on ‘building your future’ resulted in 86% of upper sixth students progressing onto university last year, with a further 13% securing an apprenticeship or employment with training. Furthermore, the attention given to ‘developing mind and character’ has enabled even more students to develop valuable employability skills, play an active role in community fundraising and take up opportunities to enhance their personal development.
In my short time at the college, I have seen the passion, hard work and commitment demonstrated by staff and students and how they have benefitted from the positive community spirit that permeates through college every day. Visitors to the college frequently comment on its happy and purposeful atmosphere. I believe this comes from the friendly and respectful relationships which exist between staff and students, creating a college community where each person is valued and can flourish.
I am delighted that you are considering Blackpool Sixth. We are proud of our achievements, many of which have had national recognition due to the successes of our students over the years. I warmly invite you to explore Blackpool Sixth for yourself so you can get a feel for the college first hand.
