Your Sixth Form College

…is what you make of it. We encourage involvement in all aspects of the organisation and running of the College. So if you want to be on the College Council, organise social activities, run sports teams or be an observer attending school governors’ meetings, there will be a way for you to make your mark.

Your time in the College should help you prepare for your future, whether it is university, vocational training or work. Your studies are the main route to your dream but what you do outside lessons can also influence your chances of success.

Your academic success

The right choice of courses is important. Full details of the courses on offer can be found on our website. They range from Leisure and Tourism to BTEC Level 3 Hospitality and Catering to A level History. We will help you select the most appropriate courses for your chosen path. Once you have started your courses we will provide you with support in your subjects and through your form tutor. In return we expect you to maintain high standards of:

  • Commitment
  • Attendance
  • Punctuality

The transition between Year 11 and Sixth Form can be challenging. We will work with you to make it a success. Likewise, we will help you prepare for academic success after you leave us. We have an excellent record of assisting students into successful post-18 study and employment.

Your life beyond lessons

All work and no play makes it difficult to fill in application forms! We will offer you a range of activities, from driver training to Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award. Want an activity we don’t currently offer? Help us set it up.

Your future

The College has links with local universities and colleges as well as higher education organisations further afield. Support for your future will include:

  • Advice on higher education qualifications
  • Access to university and college

Information events

As an Applied Learning College we offer a range of vocational courses. These will help you prepare for a future in health care, travel, business, sport, hospitality and catering. Make the most of work experience to get your first steps up the ladder of your choice.

Want something different? Our Connexions officer is permanently based at the school and has dedicated sessions for College students.

Your time at Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College will give you the experiences, confidence and support to achieve your goals.
