Making your choice about what and where you want to study next is a very significant decision; it could change your life.
Lowestoft Sixth Form College is a very friendly and welcoming place. We are bigger than a school sixth form so can offer many courses and combinations whilst we are small enough to offer real, individual attention and support. With us you will gain vital qualifications and something extra too: the confidence and inspiration to excel.
We are a well-established college offering an excellent student experience. Our students achieve brilliantly; in 2018, 99.7% of our A Level students passed their exams, with 80% achieving A*- C grades. Our BTEC students did equally well with 100% passing their Diploma course, and 84% achieving top distinction grades.
We are extremely proud to say that, according to the Department for Education’s performance tables, Lowestoft Sixth Form College is one of the top 3 performing sixth form colleges in England for A level and BTEC performance, and the top performing sixth form college in the East of England.
Our Student Feedback
We are very proud that our students rate their college experience very highly indeed and would advise others to complete their studies with us. In the most recent student satisfaction survey (Summer 2018) benchmarked nationally by the University of Durham, Lowestoft Sixth Form College student feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
As a Sixth Form College we are specialists, we educate 16-19 year olds only. This allows our teachers to truly focus on your needs. Our teachers understand young people, they are friendly, approachable, committed and qualified specialists in their subject area.
Lowestoft Sixth Form College is a brand new, £25 million purpose-built college. Our science laboratories, art rooms, music and multi-media suites and performance spaces have all been specially designed to support your learning. Additionally, over £1.3 million has been invested in the IT infrastructure and equipment alone to provide an exceptional service. We have full WIFI coverage.
We offer over 50 different qualifications including A Levels, vocational BTECs, and GCSEs, which allows many varied combinations to suit your talents and interests.
Excellent Close Individual Support
Every student is unique and our support recognises this. Transition from school can seem scary but you will have a Student Achievement Mentor who you will meet every week to support you. You will be able to monitor your progress on the Lowestoft Sixth Form College Dashboard. You will also work alongside your teachers and Student Achievement Mentor on agreeing individual targets which will be continually monitored throughout the year. We offer a host of other support services all to enable you to achieve the best you can.
A Mature Learning Environment Very Different To School
There are no bells and no uniforms. You will be supported to take responsibility for your learning, which will provide an excellent foundation for your next step to university or into employment.
Opportunities and Fun
We offer you many, many opportunities beyond your studies. You will make friends, develop new interests and have a fresh start. These experiences will both enrich you and your time at Lowestoft Sixth Form College but also enhance your CV and support your university application.
