Here at Plymouth College, we nurture talent - in whatever form that may be.
Alongside a wide curriculum encompassing academic, creative and sports subjects, we have a comprehensive enrichment programme designed to place our students in the best position possible for a variety of pathways after their time with us - be it in the world of work, or academia.
We pride ourselves on our pastoral system. Each student is recognised as an individual; their individual talents contributing to make us a strong and diverse Sixth Form.
Pastoral and academic support and guidance are delivered through small tutor groups, overseen by The Head of Sixth Form and Deputy Head of Sixth Form. UCAS and Careers are delivered through this network, plus a wealth of contacts with different spheres of both working and academic environments. Students normally study three subjects for two years, or the Sports Baccalaureate option. Enrichment and sports and fitness complement the academic programme.
We view the Sixth Form as being the transition to the adult world. In an environment of mutual respect and cooperation, teachers and students work together towards achieving aspirations - whatever they may be.
Our Sixth Form centre offers a base to do so in school, and is much more than just an academic hub. With numerous sporting and social opportunities, Plymouth College is very much the place to be to develop each element of character and personality. Being part of our Sixth Form enables students to be themselves, to be a success and we help, support and guide them along their own chosen pathway.
