Thank you for showing an interest in joining City College. We are a new type of college aimed at preparing students for the modern world – from our special partnership with some of the top universities in England and across the world, the hundreds of businesses that offer work placement opportunities or apprenticeships, to our students, we have a special experience on offer for you.
We value your aspirations for the future and are fully committed to supporting you in your university or careers based journey. One of our great strengths is that we offer a continuity of experience and that we are small enough to care for every student on a personal level. Many of our college students will choose to stay with us at the end of their year 11 studies in an environment where they are known and which encourages the highest standards.
If you are new to City College, you will soon find that you become known to staff and peers and are part of a supportive, welcoming community that aims to provide a personalised college experience to maximise your full potential. Personal mentors support students on a one-to-one basis and monitor their progress and attainment so that they feel supported and encouraged during their transition to the adult world.
Making decisions about the next stage of your education is both exciting and challenging; exciting in the sense that you can now choose to focus on the experience that will lead you to success and enjoyment, and challenging, because you need to make informed decisions, which will open career options for your future. At City College you can trust us to help you make the right decisions.
We offer the best academic and Pre-Apprenticeship Learning in the country for our college students because we believe they deserve the best.
I look forward to welcoming you to City College and involving you in the life of our unique sixth form experience.
At City College, our strength is our unity; a core team of staff who look to provide consistently high standards of education and pastoral support, to allow all students to progress, no matter what their starting point.
Within our student body we see a variety of needs and aspirations, and collectively we work hard to support all our students in chasing their dreams. Our provision is broad, but all students are equal and our curriculum personalised.
Our successes are tangible; students progress post-16 and are studying at universities all over the UK, or are employed in local businesses with the skills needed to embrace challenge and maximise their earnings. The feedback is positive – students enjoy their time with us and feel well-placed to embrace the world around them when they leave.
We are proud to be making a difference to so many young lives and look forward to being a part of yours soon.
Assistant Principal (City College)
