Salisbury 6th Form College is a vibrant, fun and inspirational centre of excellence, passionate about new technologies and their integration in all aspects of college life. We offer a wide range of advanced level and vocational level 3 courses for 16-19 year olds in Salisbury and the surrounding areas.
We strive to be innovative with our course choice combinations and ability to remove barriers preventing students from accessing them so that our students are happy and confident with their choice. Teaching is delivered in cutting-edge teaching and study facilities.
We are proud to have at its centre a strong philosophy of nurturing and outstanding enrichment options where, irrespective of academic choices and achievement, students have opportunities and encouragement to shine.
Our students know that by studying here they will be in a stimulating and supportive environment, confident that their future success, whether that is university, employment or further training, is at the heart of the college.
In 2017, S6C had its first Ofsted inspection since opening in 2014 and the creation of an excellent new education provision was confirmed with a “Good” rating in all areas, including: leadership and management; teaching, learning and assessment; personal development, behaviour and welfare; outcomes for learners; and 16 to 19 study programmes.
The report praised the governors and college leaders for successfully creating an “ethos of tolerance, respect and high aspirations for learners” and for “quickly and effectively” responding to the need for additional, local sixth form provision for learners who have a wide range of academic achievement at the end of key stage 4.
Our aim is to: open up aspirational learning opportunities, leading to better employment prospects for young people and providing confident pathways into Higher Education; have a strong and broadly Christian ethos that will provide a nurturing, supporting but challenging environment leading to high retention and success rates; provide a platform for attainment and aspiration which will inspire the confidence of young people and their parents; respond to the wishes of young people and parents in the local area for a sixth form college providing an effective and smooth transition from the current good 11 – 16 provision.
