The College is one of our two Senior Schools, welcoming students from Years 10 to 13. College students are expected to be strongly self-motivated and have a pro-active approach to their studies. They take responsibility for their learning and have the academic ability to succeed on the traditional GCSE or A Level curriculum, following a demanding study programme.
"The College offers a focused and dynamic academic curriculum. Students follow a traditional GCSE or A Level pathway alongside an exciting range of super-curricular and enrichment options. Our students are academically stretched and challenged and encouraged to aspire to excellence. They leave us as confident, independent learners, well prepared to succeed in higher education and their future careers."
Head of the College, Kevin Oldershaw
The College: Rated Excellent by ISI
The latest ISI report awarded The College the highest rating of 'excellent' along with the other three schools; Chapter House, King's Magna and The Faculty. The glowing report detailed that pupils have extremely positive attitudes towards their work and activities, showing the ability to work both collaboratively and independently, and a strong desire to take responsibility for their own learning.
Pupils achieve much success in a very wide range of sporting, cultural, academic and outdoor activities, facilitated by the very comprehensive programme of extra-curricular activities on offer.
"Pupils achieve very high standards in their GCSE, IGCSE, BTEC and A-level examinations and make excellent progress across all areas of learning throughout their time in the school."
