Ridgeway Sixth Form College is opening doors to potential students looking to boost their job prospects or secure a place at university.

The college is holding an open evening on Thursday October 11 where members of staff will be on hand to advise anyone interested in finding out what R6 can offer.

The Ridgeway Sixth Form College (R6) offers an all-round Sixth form experience. Students are encouraged to embrace all opportunities and to aspire to be the best they can be.  All subjects are taught by specialists and the teachers are highly passionate about what they do.

The learning ethos at R6 is encapsulated in three words: aspirations, commitment and expectations.

“Our aspirations for the students, in turn facilitating our students to aspire to be the best they can!  Our commitment to the students so that they can achieve the best they can. And, our expectations that students will do their best, knowing that the students in turn can expect the highest quality teaching and learning.  We expect students to have high expectations of themselves too. We are very proud of the achievements of all of our students whether they continue their studies at university or go on to secure apprenticeships or full-time employment.”

Over the last five years on average 68% of R6 students have progressed to university with 30% studying at Russell Group Universities. And, a quarter of the A-level grades achieved in 2018 were at A* and A.

All students in R6 receive individual guidance as they prepare to apply for university or for a job, with the R6 Aspire programme focussing on those who wish to gain a place at a top university, or pursue a career in medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine, or simply to have the best chance of getting a good job.

Potential students are also encouraged to visit the Sixth Form College during school time to experience Sixth Form Lessons for themselves. For further details follow this link to the Ridgeway School website
