On 1 December 2011 Cirencester College celebrated becoming a Sixth Form College which recognises excellence in education.
Although the College is only 20 years old, this is yet another milestone in its ambitious history, after receiving Beacon status in 2004 for excellent teaching and learning and an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted report in 2006.
The College provides a broad range of courses from basic entry level through to its extensive range of A-levels and vocational courses and the opportunity to study at University level or on a professional training course.
With a tutorial and support programme which encourages students to reach their full potential and realise their ambitions, in 2011 Cirencester College boasted an A-level pass rate of 99.6% with 56.1% of those students achieving A* to Bs in their A-levels. 98.6% of vocational students passed their BTEC courses. In all over 140 students gained the equivalent of 3 grade As at A-level and above.
