The Sixth Form College Farnborough is a wonderful place to work and study! The values of the College - achievement, care, development of the individual, progression - are captured in the Mission Statement:
‘to be a distinguished provider of the highest quality education, enriching the lives of all students within a lively, caring community and enabling all to develop the skills to meet the demands of a changing world with confidence.’
We like our students here and seek to work with them to gain success. All our students are full time, 16-19 year olds. Whilst we are a large sixth form college, at Farnborough we know the importance of counting in 1s! Central to the ethos is pastoral support through a team of specialist Personal Tutors, all experienced and successful teachers.
In addition to their studies, College students participate in a range of enrichment activities. Excellent sports facilities enable College teams and individuals to compete at county and national level; there is a rich tradition of performing arts based at the Prospect Theatre, with strong music, dance and drama. The Student Association committee oversees a large number of clubs and societies, providing an important opportunity for leadership and teamwork.
We are an ambitious college, with high aspirations for students and ourselves. I am proud to be the Principal of an establishment which inspires and challenges young people. It is our hope that the College provides a big space in which our students can grow tall; a place in which the ordinary can become extraordinary.
