A Warm welcome to Egglescliffe Sixth Form College
Egglescliffe is a very lively, high-achieving Sixth Form. It has been described in the Good Schools Guide as “effervescent” and “busy from dawn ‘til dusk”. Our last inspection report rated Egglescliffe Sixth Form as “outstanding” in all its dimensions. It is our belief that preparing students for the next stage in their careers relies not only on academic success but the chance to develop a broader range of skills and interests. Specialisms in Arts, Maths and Sciences have allowed us to build up resources which have afforded our students a whole range of extra and super curricular opportunities. As a parent with one son currently in the sixth form and another who left in 2015 I can vouch for the fact that my colleagues provide an outstanding array of activities in sport, music and drama as well as excellent teaching. The enrichment programme provides specific life skills and educational trips develop group work and life long memories.
More than half of our own Year 11 students choose to join the Sixth Form and last year over 60 students joined us from 11-16 schools in the Tees Valley. This ‘new blood’ provides a new dynamic which adds to the experience of our own students. We offer a high-quality experience for everyone, and we place a high premium on our friendly, purposeful and homely atmosphere.
Sixth Form study within a school environment is a very popular and successful option for many students. We are proud of our examination results, which are consistently well above local and national averages. Individual guidance, combined with an enjoyable and challenging atmosphere, make for a winning formula.
You are very welcome to find out more by arranging a visit at any time. We look forward to seeing you.
