6th Form Colleges

These are specialist centres which offer A level courses, the IB as well as the option of re-sitting GCSEs.

The colleges tend not to have boarding facilities as such (although some do) but are able to provide accommodation somewhere near the college. Courses tend to be quite intense and there is less opportunity for extra-curricular and sporting activity than at a traditional senior boarding school.

However, for students wanting a more relaxed and informal experience, then these colleges can provide that.
