As Wirral’s only specialist sixth form and officially rated as ‘Outstanding’, we are confident that Birkenhead Sixth Form College is the right choice for you after GCSEs, and we are delighted that you are considering coming to the College.

I am extremely proud to tell you that OFSTED gave the College the maximum score in all areas during their recent inspection, and awarded us the overall rating of ‘Outstanding’, praising the standards of our teaching along with the students’ personal development, and of course, our superb exam results.

The official report, which can be read here, says that ‘students develop into young adults with a thirst for learning’. We are so thrilled as this is clearly an attribute that that will stay with the students for the rest of their lives. It is also wonderful to see the acknowledgement that is given to the inclusive nature of the College.

This news follows on from our shortlisting for the prestigious TES ‘Sixth Form College of the Year Award 2017’, as well as achieving A Level results placing in us top 10% nationally for value added to students’ grades in 2016.

Focusing solely on post-16 education allows us to offer a fresh and mature learning environment that is different from school, and it is one in which each of our students is given the opportunity to thrive.

More students choose to come to Birkenhead Sixth Form College each year than any other Wirral school, as we are able to offer the widest choice of subjects and an adult approach to learning which centres on developing independence and mutual respect while still being supported in every aspect of College life, and all in state-of-the-art facilities.

We would very much enjoy the chance to welcome you to the College so that you may talk to our teachers and tutors, and perhaps most importantly, so you can hear from our students themselves. Please come along to one of our Open Evenings or feel free to contact us to arrange a visit to the College – we would be more than happy to give you a personal tour and speak to you about the many exciting prospects that studying at Birkenhead Sixth Form College can bring.
