At New College there is more to the sixth form college experience than studying for exams. We believe that students should have plenty of opportunities to access a wide range of activities to enrich the academic curriculum and at the same time develop new skills and interests.

In the competitive higher education and employment market, successful students are often the ones who have gained a broad experience and can demonstrate that they have made the most of their time at sixth form college. Participation in enrichment activities will strengthen your application, whilst at the same time enhance your overall learner experience.
