Why choose us?
Whatever you’re choosing to do, providing you meet our entry criteria, there’s a programme at Long Road to help you move up the academic ladder.
We pride ourselves in taking students from a wide range of academic, social and cultural backgrounds. Our students achieve their goals – whether it’s a top university or cutting edge employment. What’s important to us is not where you’ve come from, but where you want to go.
Quite simply, we need you to be ambitious. And us? Well, we’re driven not only by helping you get there, but helping you be the best you can.
Are you ready for Long Road?
It will be different here from what you’ve been used to. For you, that’s probably the whole point – it’s probably time to leave school behind, to make a fresh start and take the next step up.
We are a specialist sixth form college. That means all 2,300 students here are aged 16–19. They’re all here studying to get the qualifications they need to progress into university or employment. It’s busy, exciting and diverse, but it’s also friendly, open and inclusive.
What you’ll notice here from day one is how you are treated – as an adult. Possibly for the first time you’ll have free time during the day: time we trust you will spend productively. In return for the greater freedom this brings, you’ll be expected to study and organise yourself in a new, more mature way, taking greater responsibility for your own studies.
This might all sound a little daunting but in no time you’ll have new friends, new interests and there’ll be no looking back! Right for you? Then maybe it’s time you moved on up to Long Road Sixth Form College.
All staff at Long Road Sixth Form College are committed to providing excellent teaching for you and so take part in continuing professional development to ensure that subject knowledge is current and that teaching methodologies are innovative.
