welcome from the principal

I am pleased to welcome you to Marple Sixth Form College, and thank you for visiting our website.

The website shows in detail the extensive range of courses and programmes on offer at our college, as well as information on the wide range of support available.  Indeed, as a college we are committed to caring for each individual within a friendly environment, to us you are a ‘name not a number’.

We are the only college locally that offers the 2 routes available to 16 year olds after leaving Year 11,  namely A levels and vocational programmes such as BTEC’s.  We offer a stimulating learning environment, and as such our students progress to destinations of their choice, be it university, higher apprenticeships, or employment.

Our most recent Ofsted inspection said:

‘Since the last inspection, the principal and senior leadership team have successfully promoted a culture of high expectations and high standards of teaching, learning and assessment.  This has resulted in improvements in outcomes for learners which are now good across most of the provision’.
