Welcome to Long Road!

Our Principal, Yolanda Botham, welcomes you to Long Road Sixth Form College

I am delighted that you are considering Long Road Sixth Form College for your next step. We are a very friendly, inclusive College where I am confident you’ll make friends for life. Long Road is a special place because we value everyone’s contribution to our collaborative community. Our goal is your success whatever your interests.

As experts in 16-19 education, we understand that this stage can be thrilling, demanding and sometimes a little daunting. That’s why we make sure you’ll have close individual support to ensure a smooth transition from school. At Long Road, you’ll experience more independence – in a university-style environment (no bells or uniforms) and we’ll support you to learn the skills and confidence to thrive here and in the future.

As all our Ofsted inspections have highlighted, Long Road has a long and proud history of supporting students to achieve their best. Our students are very successful because our teachers are truly committed subject specialists because we believe every student is unique and because we provide just the right level of support. Our facilities for learning are great too.

We truly value our students and listen to their contributions. In return, we ask that you commit to your studies and work hard. Our teachers are passionate about your learning. They want you to enjoy their subject and to succeed. All too soon you’ll be thinking of your next move; we want you to leave Long Road proud of what you have contributed and achieved, and ready to do more.

I hope we meet soon.
Best wishes,

Yolanda Botham  | Principal
Long Road Sixth Form College
